Władysław Franciszek Jabłonowski 1769-1802, was a Polish and French general. He fought during Tadeusz Kosciuszko's uprising in 1794. He participated in battles at Szczekociny , Warsaw, Maciejowice , and at Prague. In 1799 he was made general of brigade of the Polish legions. From 1801 he was the leader of Legia naddunajska. He was sent on his own request to Haiti in May 1802 (before the decision to send the rest of the Polish legions); he worked to put down revolts in the north in August. Jabłonowski died from yellow fever on September 29, 1802 in Jeremie, Haiti.
It is noted that his ancestry was part African.
