This is a list of Polish uprisings.
The Polish concept of uprising is derived from the system of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, where the citizens were supposed to play an important role in the governing of the country. Unsatisfied citizens were allowed to form Rokosz, the legal rebellion against government. Rebelion movements were shaped in the Confederation, a council whose members voted.
Following the example, national uprising were perfectly organised movements against the oppressors. Many of them occured during the century of uprisings (1764-1864), and were, with small exceptions, all defeated.
