The Polish-Lithuanian Monarchy in European Context C. 1500-1795


The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth is often considered an "aberration" where monarchy was reduced by the nobility to impotence. This collection assesses the institution and idea of monarchy within the Commonwealth's mixed form of government, with emphasis on the perspectives from the Lithuanian and Prussian components of the Commonwealth, and on international comparisons.
