THE PRINCE, “WHO DEDICATED HIS LIFE FOR THE HOMELAND”. PORTRAITS OF COLONEL DOMINIK HIERONIM RADZIWIŁŁ (1786–1813) – THE IX ORDYNAT OF OLYKA. Dominik Hieronim Radziwiłł (1786–1813) was the last Ordynat of Olyka from the Nesvizh line. He was the son of Hieronim Wincenty Radziwiłł (1759-1786) and the nephew of Karol Stanisław „Panie Kochanku” Radziwiłł (1734–1790). Despite the fact, that in his period family residences had deteriorated or became derelict, the estimation about his owner behaviour cannot be negative. It is not denying that this nobleman was a patriot who dedicated his life for the homeland. In 1812, Prince joined Napoleon Army and died in 1813 after the Battle of Hanau. In consequence his name became famous and respected by such an influential generals as Józef Załuski and Zygmunt Krasiński. The symbols of Radziwiłł’s heroism were presented in archival documents, graphics and paintings (for example in pictures from the collections stored in the National Museum in Warsaw and in Schillingsfürst residence). The selected aspects of his life and interpretations of portraits were presented in that paper.
