This is a list of Lieutenant-Governors of the North-Western Provinces. The provisional establishment of the Lieutenant-Governors of the North-Western Provinces happened in 1836 until the title was merged with Chief Commissioners of Oudh and was renamed as Lieutenant-Governors of the North-Western Provinces and Chief Commissioners of Oudh in 1877.

Lieutenant-Governors of the North-Western Provinces (1836–1877)[edit]

The governorship of Agra was never fully carried out, and in 1835 another statute authorized the appointment of a lieutenant-governor for the North-Western Provinces.
