Lithuanian over the centuries, through maps
Originally published by the Lithuanian Bureau of Information in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1918, this map was re-issued in the US at the direction of the Lithuanian National Council. The individual maps trace the state of Lithuania from pre-historic times, through the reign of Mindaugas (1242-1263); Gediminas (1316-1341); under the domination of Algirdas and Kęstutis (1346-1377); the reign of Vytautas (1392-1430); and Lithuania’s status before the final partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth when Lithuania was absorbed into the Russian empire.
