Maciej Strubicz (1530-1604) was a Polish nobleman, cartographer and geographer. While nothing is known of his education, by the late 16h century he had become the principal geographer to the Polish king (and map aficionado) Stefan Batory. Strubicz is known to have produced maps of Livonia and Poland, but the only one that has survived is his 1589 Magni Ducatus Lithuaniae, Livoniae et Moscoviae Descriptio. He is known to have been commissioned with a further, more detailed map of Lithuania and Poland by Prince Michael Radziwill; this map, engraved by Hessel Gerritz for Blaeu in 1613, provided the basis for the mapping of north-eastern Europe for most of the 17th century.
