History

It was created in 1837 from the Lublin Voivodeship, and had the same borders and capital (Lublin) as the voivodeship.

Its lower levels of administration were also mostly unchanged, although renamed from obwóds to powiats. There were ten of those units named after their capital cities: biłgorajski, chełmski, hrubieszowski, janowski, krasnystawski, lubartowski, lubelski, puławski (from 1842: nowoaleksandryjski), tomaszowski and zamojski.

Reform of 1844 merged the governorate with Podlasie Governorate, until the 1867 reform which reversed those changes (although Podlasie Governorate was renamed to Siedlce Governorate). In 1912 some of the territories of the governorate were split off into the newly created Kholm Governorate.

Subdivisions of Congress Poland

Congress Poland was subdivided several times from its creation in 1815 until its dissolution in 1918. Congress Poland was divided into departments, a relic from the times of the French-dominated Duchy of Warsaw. In 1816 the administrative divisions were changed to forms that were more traditionally Polish: voivodeships, obwóds and powiats. Following the November Uprising, the subdivisions were again changed in 1837 to bring the subdivisions closer to the structure of the Russian Empire when guberniyas (governorates) were introduced. In this way, Congress Poland was gradually transformed into the "Vistulan Country". Over the next several decades, various smaller reforms were carried out, either changing the smaller administrative units or merging/splitting various guberniyas.
