Merge question[edit]

Can someone please clarify how this article is different from Voivodships of Poland? --Elonka 17:33, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

It is narrower in time scope (lists only voivodeships of the PLC) and broader in administrative scope (lists other units than voivodships).--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 17:44, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Updated the page to keep to topic[edit]

Almost done restructuring the page to point to the proper sub-pages. Ajh1492 (talk) 00:18, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Confused about subdivisions?[edit]

This article is a bit confusing about the subdivisions of the Voivodeships. It says, "Each voivodeship was governed by a Voivode (governor). Voivodeships were further divided into starostwa, each starostwo being governed by a starosta. Cities were governed by castellans." But then in the table, it divides all the Voivodeships into Powiats--without explanation. When I look up Powiat, and read the history, it just says, "The history of Polish powiats goes back to the second half of the 14th century. They remained the basic unit of territorial organization in Poland, then in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, until the latter's partitioning in 1795." 140.147.236.194 (talk) 22:01, 19 April 2010 (UTC)Stephen Kosciesza

Good point, I'll fix this. Powiat is the correct answer, starostwa existed only in the royal lands. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 16:52, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

List of powiats[edit]

Can be copied from pl wiki version of this article (pl:Podział terytorialny Rzeczypospolitej Obojga Narodów). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 16:52, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
