Early History to the Nineteenth Century
The pagan Liths, or Lithuanians, may have settled along the Nemen as early as 1500 B.C. In the 13th cent. the Livonian Brothers of the Sword and the Teutonic Knights conquered the region now comprising Estonia, Latvia, and parts of Lithuania. To protect themselves against the Knights, who pressed them from the north and the south, the Lithuanians formed (13th cent.) a strong unified state.

    The earliest evidence of inhabitants in present-day Lithuania dates back to 10,000 BC. Between 3,000-2,000 BC, the cord-ware culture people spread over a vast region of Eastern Europe, between the Baltic Sea and the Vistula River in the west and the Moscow-Kursk line in the east. Merging with the indigenous population, they gave rise to the Balts, a distinct Indo-European ethnic group whose descendants are the present-day Lithuanian and Latvian nations and the now extinct Prussians. The first written mention of Lithuania occurs in 1009 AD, although many centuries earlier the Roman historian Tacitus referred to the Lithuanians as excellent farmers. Spurred by the expansion into the Baltic lands of the Germanic monastic military orders (the Order of the Knights of the Sword and the Teutonic Order) Duke Mindaugas united the lands inhabited by the Lithuanians, the Samogitians, Yotvingians and Couranians into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) in the 1230s and 40s. In 1251 Mindaugas adopted Catholicism and was crowned King of Lithuania on July 6, 1253; a decade later, civil war erupted upon his assassination until a ruler named Vitenis defeated the Teutonic Knights and restored order. Lithuania's independence under the union with Poland was restored by Grand Duke Vytautas. During his rule (1392-1430) the GDL turned into one of the largest states in Europe, encompassing present-day Belarus, most of Ukraine and the Smolensk region of western Russia. Led by Jogaila and Vytautas, the united Polish-Lithuanian army defeated the Teutonic Order in the Battle of Tannenberg (Gruenwald or Zalgiras) in 1410, terminating the medieval Germanic drive eastward.

    1386-1569 - Dynastic Connection with Poland
    King Louis of Poland and Hungary had died in 1382, leaving behind two daughters. The Polish nobility had the younger daughter, Jadwiga - at that time merely 10 years old - divorced from Wilhelm von Habsburg; they offered her in marriage to Duke JOGAILA (widely known under the Polish spelling of his name, JAGIELLO) of Lithuania, if the hitherto pagan Lithuanians would convert to Catholicism and if Lithuania would cede PODOLIA to Poland. Jagiello fulfilled both conditions; the marriage was held in 1386, beginning the Jagiellonian Dynasty in Poland. Jagiello ruled in Poland until 1434; Lithuania in 1392-1430 was ruled by Duke VYTAUTAS THE GREAT .
    In 1388 the DIOCESIS OF VILNIUS was founded; another diocesis was established in SAMOGITIA in 1417.
    The Grand Duchy, although closely allied with Poland, remained a separate political entity. The Grand Duchy included Lithuanian (now Catholic) heartland in the north, and large stretches of areas inhabited by RUTHENIANS (Belorussians, Ukrainians) of Orthodox confession. At the SYNOD OF NOVOHRODEK (1415) the Orthodox church of the Grand Duchy declared itself independent. Head of the Grand Duchy's Orthodox church was the METROPOLITAN OF KIEV, residing in Novohrodek.
    The Lithuanian nobles elected their dukes. Although Poland and Lithuania often were ruled in PERSONAL UNION (i.e. the King of Poland also was Grand Duke of Lithuania), Lithuania kept separate political institutions - an administration, assembly, army.

    Short Remarks about History of Seimas
    Modern history of Lithuania's Seimas has started just after re- establishment of nation- state in 1918. On April 4th, 1919 State Council of Lithuania adopted Basic Laws of Temporary Constitution with a provision of fully democratic Seimas' elections. It was based on a proportional electoral system and voting for party lists. Nevertheless, initially counting of votes was based on d'Hondt formula, but later (in 1922) it was changed to Quota method. Lithuania's elections' law fully enfranchised all adult population of the country. The right to vote was granted to all citizens of 21 years old and over. The right to be elected to the Seimas was granted to citizens of 24 years old and over. In 1936 amendments to Elections' law changed age limits of voters. According to them only citizens of 24 years old and over were able to take part in the elections. A minimal age limit to be elected to Seimas was established for 30 years old citizens. The elections to Constituent Seimas were held on April 14-16th, 1920. A territory of Lithuania was divided into 10 electoral districts, but actual voting was held only in 7 electoral districts due to occupation of Vilnius region by Poland in 1919. Every member of parliament was supposed to represent approximately 15 thous. adult inhabitants of the country. The Constituent Seimas has had 112 members from 8 parties, ethnic minorities and independents. Procedure of parties' registration for elections required that their lists were supported , at least, by 50 voters in each electoral district. A voting turnout exceeded 90 per cent during elections of the Constituent Seimas.

    Origins of Central Banking in Lithuania

    Key Dates in the Development of the Bank of Lithuania

    Restoration of the Bank of Lithuania in 1990 and its Activities to the Present The Bank of Lithuania, established in March 1990, has continued the traditions of the central bank operating in the period between two world wars.
    From 1990 to 1992, when Lithuania was still in the rouble zone, the Bank of Lithuania was not able to pursue an active monetary policy, and its main efforts were aimed at preparing for the introduction of the national currency. In 1992 the temporary currency, the talonas, was introduced, which allowed the Bank of Lithuania to perform the functions of an independent central bank. The litas was introduced in 1993, triple-digit inflation was curbed and the exchange rate of the litas was stabilised.
    Seeking relative price stability over a longer period, the Litas Credibility Law of 1994 pegged the litas to the US dollar at fixed exchange rate; pursuant to this Law, the litas is issued into circulation with a 100 per cent backing with gold and convertible currency reserves, and the main source of issue is the purchases of foreign exchange by the Bank of Lithuania.

    and 15th Century Development
    In 1384, Hedwig, an 11-year-old daughter of Louis the Hungarian, was called to Poland by the knights and representatives of towns and ascended the Polish throne. The group of Krakow magnates who were ruling Poland chose to give her hand to the pagan ruler of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Jagiello. There was one string attached, howeverLithuanians had to become Christian and become part of the Crown of the Polish Kingdom. The Union was concluded at Krewo in 1385. One year later, Jagiello was baptized in Krakow, assuming the name of Ladislaus, and the assembly of Polish knights elected him King of Poland. After the death of Hedwig in 1399, Jagiello's right to the throne was confirmed by the Royal Council. That sealed the elective character of the throne in the Crown of the Polish Kingdom. Poland and Lithuania concluded the Union in light of the perils posed to both states by the expansion of the Teutonic Order. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania was a very large and internally differentiated state. Very few Lithuanians inhabited the northern and western areas of the state. To the east and south laid the lands of the Ruthenian princes, which Lithuania had conquered, having repelled the Mongols. The population of Ruthenians (inhabitants of Slavonic descent professing Orthodox Christianity) was more numerous, with their language and culture dominating even at the court of the grand Lithuanian dukes.

    76. History Of The Jews In Poland
    uprising under Bohdan Chmielnicki broke up, was a breakthrough in the history of both cent of the total population of Poland and the Grand Duchy of lithuania.
    History of the Jews in Poland Early History The earliest verifiable records of Jewish settlement in Poland date from the late 11th century. However, it is generally believed that Jews arrived in Poland much earlier. Many scholars discard the theory that a large number of followers of the Judaic faith came to Poland from the east in about 965 after the fall of the Khazar state. While it is true that the rulers of Khazar converted to Judaism, there is substantial disagreement amongst researchers as to whether or not their subjects converted in significant numbers. The first Jews to arrive on Polish territory were merchants who were referred to as Radhanites. The Radhanites were merchants whose trade extended over vast distances between east ans west. They were fluent in Arabic, Persian, Greek, Spanish, "Franklish" and "Slav" languages. Their entrance occurred simultaneously with the formation of the Polish state. One of them was Ibrahim ibn Jacob, the author of the first extensive account about Poland. In the summer of 965 or 966 Jacob made a trade and diplomatic journey from his native Toledo in Moslem Spain to the Holy Roman Empire and Slavonic countries. Feudal disintegration, the birth of towns and the development of commodity money relations favored the settlement by Jews in Poland. Nevertheless, the influx of Jews was brought about mostly by their persecution in Western Europe, which gained in force during the crusades. Among the first Jews to arrive in Poland (in 1097 or 1098) were those banished from Prague. Jews from Bohemia and Germany settled primarily in Silesia. They usually engaged in trade and agriculture and some owned landed estates. By the middle of the14th century they had occupied thirty-five Silesian towns. Jewish settlement in other parts of Poland proceeded at a much slower pace and the first mention of Jewish settlers in Plock dates from 1237, in Kalisz from 1287 and a Zydowska (Jewish) street in Krakow in 1304.

    77. Iron Crosses: Pre-Christian History And Beliefs
    A look at the history of the last pagan country of Europe, lithuania. The site includes translations of folktales, histories of the grand dukes and a collection of lectures on the ancient preChristian beliefs.
    ithuania, on the shore of the Baltic Sea, has had a very intriguing role in European development, in various ways: militarily, economically, politically and religiously. It was the last country to accept Christianity, in 1387, as part of the marriage agreement between Grand Duke Jogaila and Jadwiga, Queen of Poland. The new faith lived in conjunction with the old nature-based beliefs; and well into the twentieth century in certain regions. odern Lithuanians are an unusual amalgam of Catholicism and a fierce pride in their pagan past. Many will proudly state that Grand Duke Jogaila and his cousin Grand Duke Vytautas the Great defeated the Crusading Teutonic Order. The language was nearly wiped out when it was under the auspices of the Russian Empire But it endured, and to this day Lithuanians are fiercely protective of both their language and of their culture. This website is dedicated to exploring the history, culture, folktales, and folk beliefs of this most colourful country. Table of Contents

    Welcome to Medieval Lithuania!
    This site is devoted to the history of Lithuania in the Middle Ages. Central and Eastern Europe's medieval history cannot be fully understood without some familiarity with Lithuania's medieval history. Medieval Lithuania included also the territory of modern Belarus and the greater part of Ukraine and had strongly influenced the historical fate of Poland and the other countries in the region.
    Lithuania was first mentioned in 1009, formed a state ca. 1183, and developed into a powerful empire in the 14 th century. It survived and gained power in the constant fight with the Teutonic Knights, supported by almost the whole of Catholic Europe, the Tartar hordes and Muscovite Russia.
    th Century.
    At the end of the Middle Ages almost the whole of Central Europe was ruled by the dynasty of Lithuanian origin – the Jagiellonians. The lands of the three Jagiellonian brothers (Wladislas, the King of Bohemia and Hungary; John Albert, the King of Poland; Alexander, the Grand Duke of Lithuania) formed a Jagiellonian political system, which existed from 1492 to 1526.
    States ruled by the Jagiellonians at the end of the 15 th century: 1 - Borders of the Holy Roman Empire, 2 - Borders of the States ruled by the Jagiellonians, 3 - Lands annexed to Moscow in 1494, 4 - Vassals of the Polish Kingdom.

    The Castle of Voruta
    The castle of Voruta was one of the most important castles during the reign of the first and the only crowned King of Lithuania Mindaugas (1238–1263). Here Mindaugas defended himself in 1251, in time of the internal war. Later Voruta disappeared and its location became a matter of dispute among historians. The hillfort of Šeimyniškėliai near Anykščiai (which was called Varutė Hill by the local people) is the most reliable site of the castle of Voruta.
    The archaeological investigations of the hillfort started in 1990 (chief – Gintautas Zabiela). In 1997 the mayor of the Anykščiai region Saulius Nefas suggested an idea of building a wooden castle on the Šeimyniškėliai (Voruta) hillfort. It was supported by a large number of representatives of intelligentsia not only in Anykščiai, but also in the whole of Lithuania. After long discussions with both the community and experts of cultural heritage protection, the construction of the castle on the entirely excavated hillfort was approved.
    On February 26, 1999, in the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania a declaration concerning the construction of the wooden castle was signed.
