Note 019
From Chapter 67 of the Decline & Fall

I have curtailed the harsh letter (Wladislaus) which most writers affix to his name, either in compliance with the Polish pronunciation, or to distinguish him from his rival the infant Ladislaus of Austria. Their competition for the crown of Hungary is described by Callimachus (l. i. ii. p. 447 - 486), Bonfinius (Decad. iii. l. iv.), Spondanus, and Lenfant.
