All the historical records of the Ukmergė Castle, which stood on the mound, are related to the Gediminas dynasty.

A well-known British historian exploring the history of Lithuania in his book, "Lithuania Rising from Medieval Farms", writes that "The Gediminas dynasty can be derived from the 13th century". And also mentioned, the Gediminas symbol - the Gediminas Columns - originate from the stylized gate of the castle-city.
It is believed that the city of Vilnius was started to build on the example of the Ukmergė.
