I'm repeating myself. "Lithuania" in the 18th and 19th century was the northern part of Prussia/Germany . People in western Europe were unaware of the "other Lithuania" beyond the border.

Lutz, it's autumn, your activity is up again ! You need some help with logic.

There is no secret peaple in western Europe were unaware of the Lithuania. Probably 90% of people in western Europe are still unaware of the Lithuania. Do you see now, imbecility of monarch is not an argument in search of truth.

Why don't you refer to the opinion of būrai themselves ?
Mano tėviške mieloji
Yra Prūsija gražioji,
Bet ypačiai Lietuva,
Žeme gulinti anapus
Rusų, lenkų bet ir šiapus,
Kad žiūri nuo Vakarų;


They knew immediately what "Lietuva" was, just as germans knew what "lietuviai/litauern" were:
Littauer, der, Lietuvninkas. bei Memel: būras (Bauer). ein L. as russisch Littauen, Žemaitis. ein L. asu poln. Littauen, Gudas.

So, the Lietuva spanned at least 3 politically divided territories: part of Prussia, part of Russia, part of Poland.
So, there were 3 types of Lietuvninkas: būras, žemaitis, gudas (depending on political subjection).

You know it since at least a year, but you pretend mental and use out-of-context opinion of a remote monarch as a valid argument.

Go Lutz !
