Administrative Divisions Of Russia In 1708–1710

December 18], 1708, Peter issued an edict dividing Russia into eight governorates (guberniyas).[2] The edict established neither the borders of the governorates nor their internal divisions; instead, their territories were defined as the sets of cities and the lands adjacent to those cities.[1] Some older subdivision types also continued to be used.[1] List of the governorates created in 1708[edit]Governorate Name in Russian Area No
