1506 ....we are all a bit Lithuanians

The Battle of Kletsk was a battle fought
                                   [on the fifth of August of the year one thousand five hundred and six,
between the army of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania,
   [and the army of the Crimean Khanate, which was a result of many disputes and conflicts.

Many of us knew that this battle took place, but we do not know enough
                                                     [such as who the Lithuanians were and the Tatars.

The Mongol-Tatars, descendants of Genghis Khan,
                 [are well known as the best warriors, and of course this certainly flatters
their ability to conquer great soils to become the vast region known as Tartary
                                                                       [had assuredly made great advances.

Regarding the Lithuanians, the surprise is that we are all a bit Lithuanians
                                                                           [and I am telling you the chances.

According to Indo-European theory, five thousand years ago,
   [from the steppes of Central Asia, they settled in Lithuania a huge number of nomads
and later due to overcrowding they migrated all over Europe
           [north, east, west and way south, even to the islands of Cyprus and the Cyclades.
