Janusz Kiszka

Janusz Kiszka (born 1600 in Krzywicze[1] (today Belarus) – 1653) was a Polish[2] politician and magnate in the 17th century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Last of the Kiszka family. Royal Rotmistrz, starosta of Parnawa from 1610, Voivode of Polock since 1621, Field Lithuanian Hetman since 1635, Great Lithuanian Hetman since 1646.[3]

Raised a Calvinist, he converted with his father and brothers to Roman Catholicism in 1606. Unlike his siblings, he was quite tolerant of his former co-religionists, also because his wife was a Calvinist too.

He married Krystyna Drucka-Sokolińska, and had no heirs.
