Why was Lithuania a duchy?

To have a kingdom you have to have a king. As such, Lithuania was only considered a kingdom for ten years (1253 – 1263), for a simple reason that there was a single christian king Mindaugas, approved by the Pope and properly crowned, the only one of the rulers to ever get the title.
