Jadwiga's Legacy is a scenario in Civilization VI that was released with the Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack.


Yours is a united nation, fusing the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania into a whole greater than the sum of its parts. You are a shining beacon amidst the chaos of Europe with your elected monarch, religious tolerance, and extensive legal rights shared by your magnates. But bright lights attract unwanted attention. Can you maintain the union you worked so hard to accomplish in the face of intractable foes?


In this scenario, you control one of three noblemen attempting to defend Poland from foreign invaders. Each player starts with two Settlers and much of the map already discovered.

This scenario uses a standard scoring system. At the end of 60 turns, the player with the highest score wins. If Vienna is razed by Barbarians, the scenario ends in defeat for all players.
