Knowledgia asks ‘Why did the Lithuanian Commonwealth collapse?’

Knowledgia asks “Why did the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Collapse? At it’s greatest extend this was one of the largest and most populous countries of 16th– to 17th-century Europe. At its largest territorial extent, in the early 17th century, the Commonwealth covered almost (1,000,000 km2 of land and on this land lived a multi-ethnic population around of 11 million. You may think it wasn’t so much but at that time, it was pretty large population. It was still a powerful country at the start of 18th century but at the end the century, it was wiped from the map. There was no Poland nor Lithuania.”
