Lodomeria (Hungarian: Lodoméria) is the Latinized name of Polish: Wladimeria (later known as Volodymyr-Volhynia), a medieval principality named after Vladimir the Great who first annexed it in 938. The disputed duchy of Vladimir (Lodomeria) changed hands several times before it was annexed by Lithuania in 1392. Lodomeria became part of Galich–Volhynia in the 13th and 14th centuries. The union of Poland and Lithuania which begun in 1506 and was finalized at Lublin in 1569 reunited the principality with Galich or Galič (Polish: Halicz, Latinized as Galicia), placing them under Poland. Since then, both names were always used side by side in regional politics. Today, the region is referred to as Galicia of Central and Eastern Europe.
From the 13th century it was a Hungarian sergeant province, and from 1772 to 1918 Lodomeria was officially a part of the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, in the Austrian Empire, although in reality its territory had become a part of the Russian Empire under the name of Volhynia.
