The article presents an analysis of the activities of the Trakai palatine and land marshal of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Jonas Jonaitis Zaberezinskis (died 1538), as the administrator of state and private lands in Užnemunė. The author analyses this figure’s relations with the efforts initiated by Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund the Old and his wife Bona Sforza to improve the state’s finances. Based on the work already done by previous authors and source data, the author tries to reconstruct the magnate groups that existed in the 1520s and 1530s, and also to analyse Zaberezinskis’ economic administration in the region where most data has survived regarding his activities, i.e. in Užnemunė, in the period from 1506 when Alytus and Simnas came under the jurisdiction of the Zaberezinskis family following the privilege of Alexander Jagiellon, until the death of Jonas Jonaitis Zaberezinskis in 1538.
