The Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791, was adopted by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, to ensure more freedom and political equality on its territory and introduce the constitutional monarchy system. It reflects enlightenment influences, which gave primacy to reason, law and freedom, as well as religious tolerance, and is considered as one of the first constitutions of its type in Europe. It is the second oldest such constitution in the world, only after that of the United States, ratified in 1787.
