The collection was created from the 15th to 20th centuries by members of the Radziwill family, one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Members of the family often occupied the highest state posts and later played an important role in the history of Prussia, the Russian Empire, and the Polish Republic. The Radzwills' Archives was in fact the official archives of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania - the state records and treaties were preserved side by side with the private correspondence of the family.
