Who is Andrzej Duda’s Wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda?

Agata Kornhauser-Duda is the current First Lady of Poland and a former teacher in Poland. Andrzej Duda, Poland’s president, is her husband.



Kornhauser was born in Kraków, Poland, to Julian Kornhauser, a writer, translator, and literary critic of Polish Jewish heritage, and Alicja Wojna, a Polonist. Jakub, her poet and translator brother, is her only sibling.

Since December 21, 1994, she has been married to Andrzej Duda. They have one daughter, Kinga, who is a law student and was born in 1995.



Since 1998, she has worked as a German teacher at Kraków’s Jan III Sobieski High School.


She was hailed as a rigorous but fair and dedicated teacher who only took one day off throughout the presidential campaign, vowing to remain with her kids until the end of the school year.

Her husband went to Bartomiej Nowodworski High School, which is a rival of her husband’s alma mater. At Jagiellonian University, where she met her husband, she wrote her dissertation on Horst Bienek’s tetralogy.

When her husband was elected president of Poland on August 6, 2015, she became the first lady of Poland.



He won the second round of the presidential election on May 24, 2015, with 51.55 percent of the vote, compared to 48.45 percent for his opponent, incumbent Bronisaw Komorowski.
