Which Polish king was portrayed by Rubens in his youth and received a telescope from Galileo: Władysław II Jagiełło, Władysław IV Vasa, August III Saxon or Stanisław August Poniatowski? This question was answered for PLN 75,000 by Mr. Jakub Kasperkiewicz from Wrocław.
Tuesday’s “Millionaires” featured the second round of qualifying rounds special edition of the program, in which participants will fight for PLN 2 million. Let us remind you that only those who answer at least seven questions (threshold of PLN 40,000) will enter the final episode. Those who succeed will meet in the grand final, where they will once again take part in the elimination round. Its winner will sit opposite Hubert Urbański to play for a stake twice as high as usual. The final will take place on Friday, October 20 at 20.
Mr. Jakub has already started his game in Monday’s episode. He then won a guaranteed PLN 40,000 and the opportunity to participate in the final episode of the special edition. He was answering a question about Cypriot metal. On Tuesday, he started the game with a history question.

We will be able to follow Mr. Jakub’s further fate during the final episode.
Painting by Rubens
Peter Paul Rubens is one of the greatest painters of the Baroque era. The collection of his works includes, among others: portrait of Władysław IV Vasa. The original burned down in a fire in the Brussels palace in 1731. However, a replica has been preserved and we have been able to admire it at Wawel for several years.
