General Information Edit
Lithuania is playable through many different centuries. From the very beginning, which starts at January 1st in 550 to the common present day. For the first time, country appears in the east of Europe at January 1st in 550 together with other eastern neighbors. For strategic interest, the player can ally either with Curonia and Poland or Latgalia and Pomerania. Unfortunately, it will be almost impossible to ally with Old Prussia, Lendians or Krivichs since they will keep you as a rival.
Lithuania appears with the state religion of the old Romuva. At the beginning of the game, it has 7 provinces and the development level of 75. If the country is not selected, the first ruler shows up only in 990 when Lithuania is already a Feudal Monarchy with "Grand Duchy" status.
Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was founded in 1570. Its government becomes elective monarchy and the state religion stays as Catholic. At that moment Lithuania was participating in Livonian war but after merge was done, it was dragged to Northern Seven Years war.
In 1796, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth stopped existing and been divided by Prussia, Austria and Russia. The next time Lithuania appears on the map is on 16th February in 1918. Unfortunately, it has only 3 provinces: Trakai, Žemaitija and its temporary capital-province Kaunas. During the Second World War, Lithuania is occupied by Soviet Union.
On 11th March in 1990, Lithuania was the first country out of all Soviet Union which declared its independence and sovereignty. It has 5 provinces with only one province having sea access (Klaipėda), thus barely preventing the country from being landlocked.

Lithuania must have a Royal Marriage with Poland, then claim their throne and declare war for it if they have a family member on Poland's throne and if all of the requirements are met.
