The Oudh State (/ˈd/, also Kingdom of Oudh, or Awadh State) was a princely state in the Awadh region of India until 1856. Oudh, the now obsolete but once official English-language name of the state, also written historically as Oude, derived from the name of Ayodhya.

The Nawab of Oudh, one of the richest princes, paid for and erected a Residency in Lucknow as a part of a wider programme of civic improvements.
