Radom Governorate (Russian: Радомская Губерния, Polish: Gubernia radomska) was a governorate of the Congress Poland.

History

It was created in 1844 from the merger of the Sandomierz Governorate with Kielce Governorate. Its capital was in Radom (previously a capital of the Sandomierz Governorate).

It was divided into 8 powiats: Kielce, Miechów, Olkusz, Opatów, Opoczno, Radom and Sandomierz.

In 1866 the Kielce Governorate was once again made an independent entity, and thus split off from the Radom Governorate.
