Coins from the Duchy of Courland

Countries and territoriesLivonia › Duchy of Courland

The Duchy of Courland and Semigallia existed from 1561 as part of the Grand Duchy of Livonia, and later became a part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1569, when Poland and Lithuania joined together. During the earliest years of Jacob Kettler's reign (1642-1682), Courland and Semigallia reached the peak of its prosperity, even going as far as to establish a colony in Africa (in the Gambia) and a colony in the West Indies (in Tobago). During the Swedish-Polish War (1655–1560), Courland lost its colonies to the Dutch, and its prosperity began to decline. In 1795, Russia annexed Courland during the Third Partition of Poland, officially ending the Duchy. Read more
