This page is devoted to maps called “Russia in Europe” – showing all of European Russia, not just a guberniya or two -- beginning when Grand Duchy of Lithuania GDL) lands began being incorporated into    
the Russian Empire following the First, 1772, Partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and continuing, showing administrative changes within Russia, until 1918. Mapmakers are almost always late    
to depict boundary changes, unless they are located, and publish, in a concerned country, so what   follows is my own research of what actually happened as a result of the partitions and later.
(I have
written a series of articles on this subject, with the first two now hosted at:
New York Map Society. Look at many commentaries, online and in books, for what exactly happened in the Partitions, and you
get mostly incomplete and incorrect information. Here’s what actually happened:

Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) land losses in the First, 1772, Partition:
  1. All of [Polish-Lithuanian] Livonian Province (Lith.: Livonijos vaivadija; Pol.: W. Inflantskie) – also called Polish-Lithuanian Livonia, Polish Livonia and Inflanty Province. Part of the
    GDL since 1561, this area in 1569, under the terms of the Union of Lublin, became jointly administered with the Kingdom of Poland. The key city was called “Dyneburg” in 18th century Polish,
    “Daugpilis” in Lithuanian, “Dünaburg” in German (its “official” name from 1275- 1893, because, even within the Russian Empire, Baltic Germans held sway in the region), “Двинcк” (Dvinsk) in Russian
    (from 1893-1920), and “Daugavpils” in Latvian, from 1920 to the present.
  2. Most of Polotsk Province (Lith.: Polocko vaivadija; Pol: W. Polockie) – everything north of the Daugava (Dvina) river, including its capital, Polotsk, on the northeast bank of the Daugava,
    and a vassal of Lithuania since 1240. The area was recaptured by Russians from 1563-78 and 1654-60. Polotsk was “Polacky” in 18th century Polish, “Пóлоцк” on Russian maps of the 18th to 20
    centuries and “Пóлацк” in today’s Belarus.
  3. Nearly all of Vitebsk Province (Lith.: Vitebsko vaivadija; Pol.: W. Witebskie)except for a sliver of land west of the Dnieper river. The province had been controlled by Lithuanians since the 13th
    century, and became a GDL province in 1503. Lost was the city of Vitebsk: “Witebsk” in 18th century Polish, “ВÍтебск” on 18th – 20th century Russian maps, and “Віцебск” in today’s Belarus.
  4. All of Mstislaw (pr. MIS-tih-slahf) Province (Lith.: Mstislavio vaivadija; Pol.: W. Mscislawskie), and conquered by a Lithuanian prince in 1358. The first Lithuanian duke of
    the province was   Karigaila, brother of Jogaila.
  5. Less than a quarter of Minsk Province (Lith.: Minsko vaivadija), the part east of the Dnieper river. This province had been a fief of Lithuanian tribes since the 12th century, and a formal part of the
    GDL since the 14th century.

Aftermath of the First, 1772, Partition in the annexed areas: The GDL’s 11 provinces had been stable for hundreds of years – now everyone in two provinces: Polish-Lithuanian Livonia
and Mstislaw, most everyone in another two provinces: Vitebsk and Polotsk, and folks in the easternmost part of a fifth province: Minsk, had to deal with a new, Russian, administration. Two new Russian
guberniyas were created for the annexed lands of the GDL:
  1. Polish-Lithuanian Livonia, and the annexed parts of Vitebsk and Polotsk provinces became part of a newly-created – and short-lived – Russian governorate, or guberniya: Pskov, which also i ncluded
    two  districts removed from the existing Russian Novgorod guberniya. It soon became apparent that Pskov guberniya was too big to be effectively administered, so Catherine the Great decreed, in     
    1776, that it be divided in two: a new, smaller, Pskov guberniya, and a new Polotsk guberniya.
  2. Mogilev guberniya was also formed in 1772, from parts of the provinces of Vitebsk, Polotsk, Minsk and all of Mstislaw.

Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) land losses in the Second, 1793, Partition:
  1. The remaining three-quarters of the Minsk Voivodeship (Minsko vaivadija) -- the part west of the Dnieper River (Lith.: Dniepras upė), including the city of Minsk.
  2. The remaining slice of Polotsk Voivodeship (Polocko vaivadija) – the part south of the Daugava river -- not taken by Russia in the First Partition.
  3. The remaining slice of Vitebsk Voivodeship (Vitebsko vaivadija) – the part west of the Dnieper river – not taken by Russia in the First Partition.
  4. The eastern third of Vilnius Voivodeship (Vilnaus vaivadija), in the GDL since 1413.
  5. The eastern half of Nowogródek Voivodeship (Naugarduko vaivadija), part of the GDL since 1507.
  6. The eastern half of Brest Litovsk Voivodeship (Brastos vaivadija), originally created in 1566 from the southern-most part of Trakai Voivodeship (Trakų vaivadija).

Aftermath of the Second, 1793, Partition in the annexed areas:
  1. Minsk guberniya (Rus.: Минская г.) was created in 1793 and lasted virtually unchanged until 1921, with these two exceptions: in 1842 Grodno guberniya  ceded Novogrudok
    uyezd to Minsk guberniya. In 1843, two Minsk uyezds, Vileyka and Disna, were absorbed by Vilna guberniya.

Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) losses in the Third, 1795, Partition: The Kingdom of Prussia annexed Užnemunė (kairiajame Nemuno krante, iš esmės sutapusi su Suvalkija), calling
New East Prussia: Neuostpreußen. The Empire of Russia took the area west to the Baltic and the eastern/northern bank of the Nemunas, excluding the Prussian Kingdom’s Memelland. It also annexed  
Courland. Specifically, it annexed:
  1. The remaining, western, two-thirds of Vilnius Voivodeship (Vilnaus vaivadija).
  2. The remaining, western, half of Nowogródek Voivodeship (Naugarduko vaivadija).
  3. The remaining, western, half of Brest Litovsk Voivodeship (Brastos vaivadija).

Aftermath of the Third, 1795, Partition in the annexed areas:
  • Former GDL lands -- including Augustavas (Pol.: Augustów) and Suvalkija (Pol.: Suwałki )and now in New East Prussia were, in 1806, both conquered by Napoleon and overrun in the Greater     
    Poland Uprising. The 1807 Treaty of Tilsit divided those former GDL lands, then called Belostok (Białystok) Dept., consisting of Białystok, Bielsk, Bobrz, Dombrowa, Drohiczyn, Kalwary,  Lomza,
    Mariampol, Surasz and Wygry. All but Bialystok went to the Duchy of Warsaw, which the  1815 Congress of Poland gave to "Congress Poland," and they remained in nominal Polish hands until WWI.    
    The area of Białystok was, from 1807 to 1842, Belostok Oblast, within the Russian Empire, after which it was merged into Grodno guberniya.
  • Russia divided the remaining territories of the GDL between Vilna and Slonim guberniyas, but on December 12, 1796 the two were merged into one, called the  Litva guberniya (Rus.: Литовская   
    г.), its capital in Vilna. On September 9, 1801 Litva g. was divided into the Litva-Vilna g. and the Litva-Grodno g., which lasted  until 1840, when Litva/Lithuania was dropped from both names       
    -- when "Lithuania" really did drop from the map of Europe. In 1843, an administrative reform created the Kovno g. (Rus.: Ковенская г.) out of seven western districts of the Vilna g., including all       
    of Žemaitija. Vilna g. (Rus.: Виленская г.) got three additional districts: Vileyka and Dzisna from the Minsk g. and Lida from Grodno g. (Rus.: Гродненская г.)

Other guberniya histories of interest to this site -- and especially to this page -- and its geographic focus:
  • Estland g. (Rus.: Эстляндская г.) was, in 1796, the new name given to Reval g., created 1719 from territories conquered from Sweden in the Great Northern War. After the 1917 Russian     
    Revolution, it was expanded to include northern Livonia.
  • Liefland g. (Rus.: Лифляндская г.) was created in 1796, succeeding the Riga g.
  • Courland g. (Rus.: Курля́ндская г.) was created in 1795 out of the territory of the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia
  • Grodno g. (Rus.: Гродненская г.) was formed in 1796, after the Third and final partition of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and originally known as Slonim g., existed until  December, 1796,
    when it was merged it with Vilna g. to form Litva g.
