"Warszawianka 1831 roku", "La Varsovienne" ("The Song of Warsaw 1831") written by Casimir Francois Delavigne, music by Karol Kurpinski.
The song was written in support of the November Uprising of 1830-1831. The French poet Casimir Delavigne was fascinated and inspired by the news of the uprising making its way to Paris and wrote the words, which were translated into Polish by the historian, journalist, and poet Karol Sienkiewicz (great uncle of Henryk Sienkiewicz).
The song is sometimes confused with a later (1905) Polish revolutionary song of the same name ("Warszawianka 1905 roku"), which had its music used for the 1936 Spanish Anarchist song "To the Barricades".
