Polish-Lithuanian relations dates from the 13th century, when the Grand Duchy of Lithuania under Mindaugas took over some of the lands of Rus and thus established a border with the then-fragmented Kingdom of Poland. Polish-Lithuanian relations improved, leading to an alliance.

From the mid-16th to the late-18th century Poland and Lithuania merged to form the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a state that was destroyed in the partitions of Poland. Due also to rising nationalist sentiments of the 19th century, Polish-Lithuanian relations steadily worsened. Competing claims to the Vilnius region led to armed conflict and poor relations in the interwar period.

During the Second World War Polish and Lithuanian territories were occupied by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, but relations between Poles and Lithuanians were still poor. After the end of World War II, both Poland and Lithuania found themselves in the Eastern Bloc, Poland as a Soviet satellite state, Lithuania as a Soviet republic. Only after the fall of communism have relations been reestablished.
