The concept of spin-orbital entanglement plays a crucial role in understanding various phases and exotic ground states in a broad class of materials, including orbitally ordered materials and spin liquids. We investigate how this entanglement depends on the value of the relativistic spin-orbit coupling. To this end, we numerically diagonalise spin-orbital model with the `Kugel-Khomskii' exchange supplemented by the on-site spin-orbit coupling. While for small spin-orbit coupling the ground state resembles the vanishing spin-orbit coupling case, for large spin-orbit coupling it can either show negligible spin-orbital entanglement or can evolve to a highly entangled state with completely distinct properties, described by an effective model. The presented range of spin-orbit coupling is relevant not only for 5d but also for 3d or some of the 4d transition metal oxides.
