He was succeeded by his brother Gediminas (1316-1341), whose proclivities ran more to thigh-length boots and defeating the invading forces of the Hanseatic League. In 1337 he broke the siege of Tallinn and slew the leader of a band of Swedish mercenaries, Sten Olafsson, who was dressed in thick metal corslets, falsies, and an auburn wig.

With the accession of Jagiello and his marriage to Queen Jadwiga of Poland, Lithuania reached its peak, and all over Europe and the Near East lovers reached for their Lithuanian ticklers at moments of intense emotional involvement.
