Grand Duchess consort of Lithuania

Queen consort of Lithuania

  • Morta and her Sister were the only Queens of Lithuania; her successors were Grand Duchesses instead
  • The short lived Kingdom of Lithuania of 1918 had a King-Elect Mindaugas II of Lithuania, but his first wife, Duchess Amalie in Bavaria, had died six years prior, and he wouldn't remarry to Princess Wiltrud of Bavaria until six years after the Kingdom was replaced by a Republic.

Vida Vidmund It is uncertain how many wives Gediminas had. The Bychowiec Chronicle mentions three wives: Vida from Courland; Olga from Smolensk; and Jewna from Polotsk, who was Eastern Orthodox and died in 1344 or 1345.[3] Most modern historians and reference works say Gediminas' wife was Jewna, dismissing Vida and Olga as fictitious, since no sources other than this chronicle mention the other two wives.[4] Gediminas
