Prince Ogiński Michał Kleofas was born on the family estate of Guzow, near Warsaw, in 1765. He was a career statesman, diplomat and warrior. He became Polish-Lithuanian ambassador to the Hague, and fought under Kosciuszko against the forces of Catherine the Great during the Final Partitions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. After 5 years in exile, during which Oginski fought tirelessly, calling on every possible diplomatic means, for the restoration of his country, he returned to Russian Lithuania and became a senator at the Court of St Petersburg under Tsar Alexander I, who had personally promised Oginski the restoration of the Polish-Lithuanian state - a promise that he would later break at the Congress of Vienna in 1815. Michal Kleofas Oginski died in Florence, Italy, in 1833.
