Mindaugas was the name of the first and the only king of Lithuania who conversioned Lithuania to Christianity, not at all succesfully at the beginning.
Nowadays, Mindaugas was called the first Lithuanian European by president of Lithuania. Lithuania and Vilnius celebrated 750 anniversary of his coronation in 2003. The Mindaugas monument (on my picture) was opened that time.
Now, a lot of things are named after Mindaguas in Vilnius. For example you can buy Mindaugas... sparkling wine in each supermarket.
