So that settles it. Charles Bronson was Polish and Lithuania is a stare of Poland.

that's why they even accepted Czech ortography and not Polish one to write their language

The Poles borrowed the original Latin alphabet of the Czechs. Lithuania then borrowed it from the Poles. Afterwards, the Czechs Germanized their alphabet, while the Poles have refused to do so. However, Lithuania decided to change to the modern Czech alphabet to distinguish themselves from Poland and show their massive inferiority complex. A clever person might complain that they are being discriminated against for preferring to use the old Lithuanian alphabet, which is completely correct.

No, they borrowed it from the ancient Romans as did almost anyone else in Europe.

The Czechs didn't do that. They rather "Husitited" it as the Czech diacritical marks were originally invented by Jan Hus, the great Czech reformer. So the Czechs "czechised" the Latin alphabet so to speak.

That's disputable. The Czech invention had one big advantage which would make people feel inclined to adopt it: you only have to use one symbol rather than two for rendering a single sound. But the Lithuanian alphabet has Polish letters in it, too.

I'm not sure how changes from cz to č and sz š to can be described as "Germanized"... do Germans eat fiš? and say čüss or live Dojčland?

Polish letters

Yes, the Letts adopted the Polish ogonek for ą, ę and į, however it is not a nasaliser but indicates a long vowel.

Jan Hus, the great Czech reformer

Also a great heretic whose Hussite marauders attacked Poland's Jasna Góra monastery and desecrated its most sacred icon of the BVM. They tried to torch it and slashed it with a sword. That is said to account for the dark hue of the Black Madonna as well as the slashes on Her cheek which have been retained in all subsequent potrayals in memory of that dastardly sacrilege.
