History

Nowogródek Voivodeship in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, 1619

The Voivodeship was composed of three counties, Nowogródek, Wołkowysk, Słonim, as well as the Duchy of Słuck It had two senators, two deputies for the Sejm, and two deputies for the Lithuanian Tribunal Its capital was the town of Nieśwież with the castle and treasury of the Radziwiłł family Nowogródek Voivodeship ceased to exist along with the sovereign state of Poland following the three Partitions of Poland, perpetrated by the neighboring empires towards the end of 18th century 1772, 1793, 1795

Zygmunt Gloger in his monumental book Historical Geography of the Lands of Old Poland provides this description of the Nowogródek Voivodeship:

“Slavic lands along the upper Niemen, after collapse of the Kievan Rus’ were in 1241 ransacked by the forces of the Mongol Empire, under Batu Khan After the Mongol raid, it turned into a desert, and was annexed by the Grand Duchy of Lithuania In c 1500, local Lithuanian dukes were named voivodes, thus Nowogródek Voivodeship was created Like the neighbouring Brest Litovsk Voivodeship, Nowogródek Voivodeship was rather narrow but very long, stretching from the upper Narew and Bialowieza Forest, to the spot where the Ptsich flows into the Pripyat

Nowogródek Voivodeship was divided into three counties: those of Nowogródek, Wolkowysk, and Slonim Furthermore, it included the Duchy of Sluck and Kopyl Each county had its own sejmik, with each electing two deputies to the Sejm, and two to the Lithuanian Tribunal It had only two senators, who were the Voivode and the Castellan of Nowogródek Northern part of the voivodeship, mainly the County of Nowogródek and the Duchy of Sluck were among most fertile lands in Lithuania, with hilly landscape and several beautiful towns, such as Tuhanowicze, Switez and Woroncza"
