Abstract: The article is dedicated to Venclova Venclovaitis, a little- known personality in the 16,h century. He belonged to the Lithuanian gentry; his brother, Venclova Agripa, was a famous public figure of that period. The information about his family, their religious beliefs and property is not precise. It is only known that he married a daughter of the Stakliskes colourbearer and had a large family: five sons and one daughter. In the district of Stakliskes he ruled the lands in or near Gripiskes, Lelioniai, and SudvariSkes; Baida in Re^ycos pavietas (an administrative district) also belonged to him. Differently from his brother, he neither made a notable career nor amassed great wealth. V. Venclovaitis was a literate man, possessed literary talents, but he was of poorer education than his brother. This could have been conditioned by educational traditions in their mothers' families, unstable financial situation in the family, and the premature death of his father. [...]
