Note:
A site visitor writes that after invoking "Regina Sacratissimi Rosarii" ("Queen of the most holy Rosary"), the people of Poland add an invocation of "Regina Regni Poloniae" ("Queen of the Polish Crown"). This addition to the Litany was approved and praised by Pope St.Pius X as a sign of Mary's Queenship over Poland. According to this source, Mary, Mother of God was crowned Queen of Poland in 1656 and again in the mid 20th century.
