  • Novgorod Viceroyalty (Russian: Новгоро́дское наме́стничество) was an administrative division (a namestnichestvo) of the Russian Empire, which existed in 1776–1796. The seat of the Viceroyalty was located in Novgorod. The viceroyalty was established by a decree (ukase) of Catherine II on September 5 [O.S. August 24], 1776. It was subdivided into two oblasts: and . The predecessor of Novgorod Viceroyalty was Novgorod Governorate with the seat in Novgorod. which belonged to Novgorod Governorate, was transformed into Tver Viceroyalty, and the rest of the governorate became Novgorod Viceroyalty. Novgorod Oblast included ten uyezds, and, in particular, Kresttsy and Kirillov were chartered to become uyezd towns. Olonets Oblast included five uyezds, and Petrozavodsk was chartered in 1777. As with most of other governorates and viceroyalties established in the 1770s–1780s, the establishment of Vologda Viceroyalty was a part of the reform attempting to have a tighter control of local matters by the Russian autocracy. The reform, in turn, was facilitated by the Pugachev's Rebellion of 1774–1775. The geographical location of the viceroyalty, which was elongated from south to north, was inconvenient and lead to exchange of lands with neighboring viceroyalties. During this period, Novgorod Viceroyalty bordered with Vologda Viceroyalty in the northeast, Yaroslavl Governorate and Tver Viceroyalty in the south, Pskov Governorate in the west, Saint Petersburg Governorate and Sweden in the northwest. In terms of the modern political division of Russia, Novgorod Viceroyalty in this period comprised the areas of what is currently Novgorod Oblast, Murmansk Oblast, the greater part of the Republic of Karelia, as well as parts of Vologda and Leningrad Oblasts and minor areas of Tver Oblast. On December 11, 1781 Olonets Oblast and Novoladozhsky Uyezd of Novgorod Oblast were transferred from Novgorod Viceroyalty to Saint Petersburg Governorate. After 1781, the viceroyalty consisted of ten uyezds, * Novgorodsky Uyezd (with the administrative center located in Novgorod); * Belozersky Uyezd (Belozersk); * Borovitsky Uyezd (Borovichi); * Cherepovetsky Uyezd (Cherepovets); * Kirillovsky Uyezd (Kirillov); * Krestetsky Uyezd (Kresttsy); * Starorussky Uyezd (Staraya Russa); * Tikhvinsky Uyezd (Tikhvin); * Ustyuzhno-Zheleznopolsky Uyezd (Ustyuzhna); * Valdaysky Uyezd (Valday). In 1796, was abolished and divided between Novgorod and Arkhangelsk Viceroyalties. After this event, Novgorod Viceroyalty was mentioned in official documents only as Novgorod Governorate. (en)
