'It takes two to tango'. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania and political union
On 12th of December LCLC members attended yet another exiting event hosted by the newly appointed Ambassador Mrs. Asta Skaisgirytė-Liauškienė at the Lithuanian Embassy. This time LCLC Members had an opportunity to remind themselves as well as learn more about Lithuanian - Polish Commonwealth "Rzeczpospolita". A special guest and a great speaker, Professor Robert Frost, made this historical subject an exciting one: full of new facts, with different and fun views.
The event was followed by an exhibition of antique maps of Grand Duchy of Lithuania, which for the event's purposes were provided to the Embassy by the former LCLC president Darius Daubaras. The antique map collection included original, well-known and historic maps of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from such cartographers as Mercator, Blaeu, Munster and others. The exhibition gave attendees an incentive for further discussions on history as initiated by Professor Frost during his lecture.
