Summary/Abstract: In this article I present a comedy writer Aleksander Fredro as an activist for the modernization of Galicia and modern Galician writer. I interpret his late works in the light of the commitment of the Galician author, I wonder if the concept of transnational ‚Galician identtiy’, proposed by Larry Wolff in The Idea of Galicia, is right, also in the context of the specific identity choices made by Fredro two grandchildren Stanisław and Andrzej Szeptycki, the first of which was a general of the Polish army, and the other – Ukrainian, church dignitary.
