Stanislaw Lezsinsky

On 26 January 1736, Stanisław again abdicated the throne, but received in compensation the Duchy of Lorraine and Bar, which was to revert to France on his death. In 1738, he sold his estates of Rydzyna and Leszno to Count (later Prince) Alexander Joseph Sułkowski. He settled at LunÚville, founded there the Academia Stanislaw and devoted himself for the rest of his life to science and philanthropy, engaging most notably in controversy with Rousseau.
