Kingdom of Lithuania 1562 Map by Rarayn Kingdom of Lithuania 1562 Map by Rarayn
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Commentary
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a map of the Kingdom of Lithuania from my "Riga-verse" TL. It's shown with it's more important internal divisions, including those seen in the Duchy of Riga 1562 map. Riga suddenly seems a lot less important when compared to Lithuania, huh?

Anyway, I'll probably go into the historical background in more detail later, but here's a quick overview:
- Moscow was burned by Mongols when it was still a minor trading post in the woods. (The main PoD of the TL. Results in a lot of butterflies.)

- The Polish nobles fail to intercept the Lithuanian crown after the Meeting of Lutsk, meaning that Vytautas the Great is crowned King of Lithuania. Results in pretty bad relations between Poland and Lithuania. Lithuania is best-buddies with Hungary though, which puts Poland in a rather awkward position.

Pretty, pretty map :O really well thought out too, particularly the alternate history...only thing that irks me slightly is whether a constitutional monarchy could've existed in that expansive an area, particularly at that time.

Thanks!

About constitutional monarchy...You have a point. Constitutional monarchies were pretty rare in the 16th century too. No idea why I wrote that back when I made the map.

This is basically Lithuanian-Rus, isn't it?

the Grand Duchy of Lithuania considered itself the successor to the old Kievan Rus' for a long time historically, so that's quite fitting, is it not?

Yes, I used that as my basemap for this map. I even said as much in the deviation description.

"- The Polish nobles fail to intercept the Lithuanian crown after the Meeting of Lutsk, meaning that Vytautas the Great is crowned King of Lithuania." ???

What rewriting of history is this?
Vytautas was never crowned as King of Lithuania because the crown was stolen by the Polish. He died without being crowned in 1430 by the official history.
