OK we can admit this, but if you think that's enough so Ludovicus IV, Emperor of Holy Roman Empire in 1337 "gave" Lithuania to Teutonic order... Or Gediminas called himself Duke of Semigalia. Question is about real power. 

German Order considered Mindaugas enough power and rights to grant this land to them - would that satisfy you, or you have further questions? 

PS - Emperor in Medieval Europe was considered to have authority over all Christian nations. Teutonic order did not ask king of France to give Scalovia to them, did they? Gediminas had every right to call himself duke of Semigalia, because Lithuania still possess Semigalian lands, I'm not refering to Nameisis and the fact them many Semigalians went to Lithuania after defeat in 1290... Sorry, but I haven;t got written ruling of Strasbourg court that Gediminas had rights to Semigalia, although he did not exercise full power there :sm32: 

In Gediminas times Lithuania controlled (if controlled) only tiny part of southern Semigalia. So title "duke of Semigalia" was without foundation.
