  Crown land - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crown land is a designated land belonging to the Crown, the equivalent of an entailed estate that passed with the monarchy and could not be alienated from it.
Among the largest Crown lands in the 16th and 17th centuries were the territories of Grodno, Malbork and Wielkorządy with Niepołomice in the Crown of the Polish Kingdom, and Mohylew and Sambor on Lithuania.
Crown lands were reformed in 1775, lessening the abuse of szlachta, and the Great Sejm of 1788-1792 decided to put them on sale, to raise funds for reforms (and modern army).
