Hedwig Jagiellon (21 September 1457 – 18 February 1502), baptized as Hedwigis, was the eldest daughter of King Casimir IV Jagiellon of Poland and Archduchess Elisabeth Habsburg of Hungary.
In 14 November 1475 Hedwig married Duke George of Bavaria in Landshut, which started the tradition of the famous medieval pageant Landshut Wedding.
It was rumored that she was locked away in a tower in Burg Trausnitz right after the wedding, however historic literature proves that she lived a normal life as a Lady of the house. Hedwig gave birth to five children of which only two daughters survived childhood years. Not much is reported after that.
