• On 1 February 1411, Henryk de Plauen, Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, concluded peace in Toruń with Ladislas, King of Poland, and Alexander Witold, Grand Duke of Lithuania.

    The first peace of Toruń put an end to the so-called Great War of 1409-1411. Although the First Peace of Toruń did not bring lasting peace, it was of great importance for Ladislas Jagiellon’s position on the international scene. As a result of this peace, in March 1412, Sigismund of Luxembourg and Ladislas Jagiellon signed a peace treaty in Stára Ľubovňa which established Jagiellon as a Christian sovereign and ended the Hungaro-Tutonic alliance surrounding Poland.
