List of Belarusian rulers

From Academic Kids

History of Belarusian states can be traced far to Duchy of Pólacak. From 13th century it belonged to Grand Duchy of Lithuania, then to Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In 19th century Belarus together with Lithuania formed the Northwestern Krai of Russian Empire. At the beginning of the 20th century there was a short-lived Belarusian National Republic, and in 1922 Belarus became part of the USSR as Belarusian SSR. In 1991, Belarus regained its independence.
