The Podlaskie Voivodeship was formed in 1513 by Sigismund I the Old as a voivodeship in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, from a split off part of the Trakai Voivodeship After Lithuania's union with the Kingdom of Poland in 1569 and formation of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, the voivodeship was transferred to the Polish Crown, where it belonged to the Lesser Poland Province of the Polish Crown

In ca 1274, the historical Podlasie region was connected to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania In 1391 the Polish King and Lithuanian Grand Duke Jogaila attempted to transfer the region to Duke Vytautas' brother-in-law, Janusz I of Warsaw, Duke of Masovia, but from 1413 on Podlaskie was managed as part of the Grand Duchy's Trakai Voivodeship After the administrative reform of 1514, Podlaskie was isolated from Trakai Voivodeship as a separate voivodeship, with the capital at the town of Drohiczyn In 1569, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund II Augustus transferred Podlaskie voivodeship, together with the Kiev, Volyn and Braclaw Voivodeships to the Polish Crown Podlaskie remained part of Poland until the Partitions of Poland In 1795 it was divided between the Kingdom of Prussia north and Russian Empire lunch, but in 1807 its whole territory was annexed by Russia, where it remained in 1918

Zygmunt Gloger gives the following description of Podlasie Voivodeship:

“Historic Podlasie stretched from north to south for some 30 miles, and was located between Mazovia and Rus principalities of Brzesc and Grodno It was a sparsely populated province, covered by dense forests, with four major rivers: the Biebrza, the Narew, the Bug and the Krzna Due to population growth in Mazovia and Rus, Podlasie became a settlement area - Mazovians settled near Tykocin, Rajgrod and Goniadz, while Ruthenians settled near Bielsk Podlaski In northern districts of Podlasie, near Augustow, the Yotvingians resided After the 1241 Mongol invasion of Poland, Podlasie turned into a desert, with population decimated by Asiatic hordes Poles did not return here until the late 13th century, despite the fact that the province was already controlled by the Grand Duchy of Lithuania

King Sigismund I the Old created Podlasie Voivodeship, which was part of Lithuania, but in 1569 was transferred to Poland, after the Union of Lublin After the third partition of Poland, most of the voivodeship was annexed by the Kingdom of Prussia When in 1815, Congress Poland was divided into new provinces, the Podlasie Voivodeship was re-created, but it covered only a small part of Podlasie itself, together with areas belonging to historic Mazovia, Polesie and Lesser Poland As a result, boundaries of Podlasie proper changed

In the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the voivodeship had two senators, who were the voivode and the castellan of Podlasie It was divided into three lands, those of Drohiczyn, Bielsko and Mielnik Each land had its own regional government, and elected two envoys to the Sejm Furthermore, the voivodeship sent two deputies to the Lesser Poland Tribunal at Lublin or Radom”
