Władysław IV Vasa (9 June 1595 – 20 May 1648) was a Polish and Swedish prince from the House of Vasa. He reigned as King of Poland from 8 November 1632 to his death in 1648. In 1610 the teen-aged Władysław was elected tsar of Russia by the Seven Boyars after the overthrow of Vasiliy Shuiski in 1610, but did not assume the Russian throne due to his father's opposition and a popular uprising in Russia. Nevertheless, until 1634 he used the title of Grand Duke of Muscovy.
