The country of Belarus contains lands that were at one time a part of multiple countries, duchies and commonwealths including: The Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Poland, The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Russian Empire, Russia and the Ukraine.

Often the trampled 'play toy' of stronger powers, the Eastern European lands that comprise Belarus were partitioned, divided up and overtaken by stronger countries from 1772 until well after Word War II.

During World War I and World War II, Belarusian lands were crossed by German and Russian armies.
