Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the history of Lithuanian statehood as envisioned by the lawyer, politician and activist of Lithuanian and Polish culture Michal Romer. The author analyses his concept's ideas, political circumstances and the main reasons why it failed. Although Romer urged activists from the National Central Committees in Warsaw and Cracow to put the issue of Historical Lithuania, important for Polish independence and regional geopolitical stability, on the political agenda in Poland, Polish politicians interpreted his plans as a “political intrigue”.
