Encyc. Brit. 1982 (Lithuania, a state incorporating Lith. proper, Belorussia and Western Ukraine, 14-16th cent. influential power in Eastern Europe. In 1377 grand duke Jogaila concluded a pact with Poland (Union of Krewo) to unite Poland and Lith. under a single ruler. The Grand Duchy retained its autonomy until the late 15th cent. when the authority of the Grand Duke declined. In 1569 the Union of Lublin was signed, Lith. and Poland were formally united and it soon became evident that Lith. was the subordinate partner)

Encyc. of Ukraine: v. 3, p. 162-163 (Lithuanian-Ruthenian State; a feudal state of the 13th to 16th centuries that included Lithuanian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian territories, which was ruled by a Grand Duke. From 1323 its capital was Vilnius. However, from 1385 when Jagiełło (1377-1392) concluded the Union of Krevo and assumed the Polish crown the Lithuanian-Ruthenian State came increasingly under Polish influence. Lithuania ceased to be completely independent and became officially Catholic. After the demise of the Jagiellon dynasty in 1572 and the Union of Lublin in 1569 Lithuania was left with only limited autonomy within the Polish Commonwealth, having ceded most of its Ukrainian lands to Poland and accepted the Polish crown and a common parliament)
