Kalisz Governorate

Kalisz Governorate (Polish: gubernia kaliska, Russian: Калишская губерния) was an administrative unit (a governorate) of the Kingdom of Poland.

History

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

Reform of 1844 merged the governorate into the larger Warsaw Governorate, until the 1867 reform which reversed those changes and recreated the Kalisz Governorate.
