Wroclaw University was established in the 16th century.
On July 20 1505 Ladislaus II Jagiello [Wladyslaw II Jagiello], the king of Bohemia and
Hungary, signed the foundation deed. However, due to numerous obstacles the University did
not develop. Two hundred years later, in 1702, a small Jesuit academy with two faculties
(Philology and Theology) was founded by the Austrian emperor Leopold I Habsburg Habsburg
and named Leopoldian Academy.
