Battle of Grotniki
The Battle of Grotniki took place on 4 May 1439 in the vicinity of Grotniki Du?e, a village near Nowy Korczyn, currently in ?wi?tokrzyskie Voivodeship.
The battle was fought between the Hussite confederates under Spytko III of Melsztyn against the royal forces of King W?adys?aw III of Poland under Hi?cza of Rogów and de facto regent bishop Zbigniew Ole?nicki. The defeat of the non-Catholic forces marked the end of militant Hussite movement in Poland and the beginning of a complete consolidation of power in the Polish Kingdom, led by bishop Zbigniew.
