The Kiev Voivodeship (Ukrainian: Київське воєводство, Polish: Województwo kijowskie) was a unit of administrative division and local government in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from 1471 until 1569 and of the Kingdom of Poland from 1569 until 1793, part of Lesser Poland. It was the biggest voivodeship of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, covering, among others, land of Dnieper Cossacks, known as Zaporizhia. Under the order of King Casimir Jagiellon, it had replaced the former Duchy of Kiev, ruled by Olelkovich dukes, heirs of Algirdas.[1] Its first administrative center was Kiev, but when the city was given to Imperial Russia in 1667 by Treaty of Andrusovo, the capital moved to Zhytomyr (Żytomierz), where it remained until 1793. Today the entire region belongs to Ukraine.
