Wojciech Chrzanowski 14 January 1793 – 26 February 1861 was a Polish general who participated in Napoleon's Russian campaign and in the battles of Leipzig, Paris, and Waterloo After Napoleon's final defeat he served in the national army of Poland, and served in the Imperial Russian Army under Hans Karl von Diebitsch against the Ottoman Empire in 1828/29 He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Order of Virtuti Militari

Chrzanowski was born on 14 January 1793 in Biskupice He was made Governor of Warsaw in 1831 He was suspected of being untrustworthy in his conduct with the Russians and was shunned by many of the people, emigrating to Paris at the end of 1831

Charles Albert, King of Sardinia, called Chrzanowski after the armistice that concluded the 1848 campaign of the First Italian War of Independence as Chief of Staff of the Piedmontese army; this caused friction in the ranks, as he was largely seen as the King's creature, and his figure and attitude did not command much respect After Eusebio Bava was removed as General in Chief, he was officially named Generale maggiore Major general, not a rank but a title for the head of staff for the upcoming campaign although de facto he would lead the army The 1849 campaign was however a complete insuccess, as he was outmaneuvered and defeated by Josef Radetzky in the Battle of Novara General Girolamo Ramorino was blamed for the defeat, and subsequently executed; however Chrzanowski did not escape censure and was dismissed from Sardinian service He lived for a time in Louisiana but died in Paris 26 February 1861 He published several works in Polish
