Fraternitas Liviensis was founded in 1918 by seven pharmacy students. The purpose was to bring together students in the same specialty area (pharmaceutical science) and to develop relations with future colleagues in a corporate form. Later became clear that a specialty-centered organization cannot grow enough, membership applicants were from other departments as well. As a result, in 1925, male students of all specialties were allowed to become members of Fraternitas Liviensis. This was followed by the affiliation with the Union of Estonian Student Fraternities in 1930. After the Tallinn University of Technology was opened in Tallinn and the students of the Department of Engineering who studied in Tartu went to study there, the department of Fraternitas Liviensis was established in Tallinn in 1936. 1940 when Estonia was incorporated into the Soviet Union and along with most other organizations, the fraternity in Estonia was closed, but continued its existence in exile.
