Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth is a federation of Polish Crown and Grand Duchy of Lithuania under the single ruler between 1569 and 1795. It was one of the most powerful countries of Europe in 16th and at the beginning of the 17th centuries but later started to degrade due to military defeats and internal troubles caused by its unique political system.
