Kraków Department was formed following the annexation of Austrian New Galicia by the Duchy of Warsaw in 1809 including areas of Zamość and Kraków. The expansion resulted in the duchy's area increasing significantly, to around 155,000 square kilometres (60,000 square miles), with its population also increasing substantially, to roughly 4,300,000.
In 1815 it was transformed into Kraków Voivodeship.
