Traidenis struggled against the aggression of the Teutonic Order, and he supported the Prussians, western Lithuanians, and Zemgalians in their rebellion against the order. In 1278 he defeated the knights of the Livonian Order. He also carried out campaigns in eastern Poland. In 1279 he made peace with Boleslaw, the prince of Plock.
