Translator's Note to the Reader

This book tells the story, from a uniquely Belarusian perspective, of how Belarus came to be. For the reader this means that place names and the names of prominent historical figures appear in guises that differ, sometimes markedly, from what is traditionally regarded as 'standard'.

For instance, the hero of both the American Revolution and the anti-Russian insurrection of 1794, Tadeusz Kościuszko, was actually born in what is now Belarus and appears in this book as Tadevuš Kaściuška. The capital of Belarus is usually known as Minsk; in Belarusian it is Miensk; the regional centres often called Brest and Hrodna are for Belarusians Bieraście and Horadnia, respectively. The name of the Belarusian city where Marc Chagall was born is usually spelt as Vitebsk; in Belarusian it is in fact Viciebsk.

Cities in lands adjacent to what is now the Republic of Belarus also played a crucial role in the history of the region as a whole. Of these the most important is undoubtedly what is now the capital of the modern Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius. For Belarusians it is Viĺnia.

This principle is extended to Ukrainian names. The capital of Ukraine is Kyiv, rather than Kiev; the name of the ruler who brought Orthodox Christianity to this part of the world is Volodymyr, not Vladimir.

It has to be remembered that the small modern Baltic state called Lithuania (Lietuva in its official language) should not be confused with the multiethnic historical Grand Duchy of Lithuania, in which the dominant part was played by the ancestors of modern Belarusians.

As an aid to the reader, when a place or personal name is mentioned for the first time in its Belarusian form, the more familiar form - usually Polish - is sometimes given in brackets. The system of transliteration from the Belarusian Cyrillic script employed in this book is the only one permitted by law for use in the Republic of Belarus.
