Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Permanent Council (Polish: Rada Nieustająca) was the highest administrative authority in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth between 1775 and 1789 and the first modern government in Europe. In some Polish text it was renamed as Zdrada Nieustająca - Permanent Betrayal.The Permanent Council was created on the insistence of Catherine II of Russia, who saw it as a way to secure her influence over the internal politics of Poland. Contrary to the Sejm, which previously had the same prerogatives, the Council could not be vetoed nor disbanded. Also, it was much less prone to influence of the minor gentry. Finally, both Catherine and her ambassador to Poland, Otto Magnus von Stackelberg, believed that the Council would be dominated by anti-royal magnates and that it would put an end to his push towards the reforms.
