Mourning after the Death of Her Highness Constance Queen of Poland and Grand Duchess of Lithuania is a sermon by Vilnius Jesuit Jakub Olszewski (1585–1634), given after the death of Constance of Habsburg (1588–1631), wife of the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund III Vasa. The book was dedicated to the Voivode of Mstsislaw and Elder of Ukmergė Mikalojus Kiška (1588–1644) and printed in the Vilnius Academy Printing House in 1631. The Vilnius Academy Printing House was the largest printing and publishing house in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and operated in 15751805. It was founded by the Court Marshal of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Mikołaj Krzysztof Radziwiłł the Orphan (1549–1616). In 1585, he gave the printing house to Vilnius Academy. The printing house published over 3,000 works in various languages, including religious and educational literature, documents from Church institutions, scientific works, works for special occasions, and works on law.
