Governorates of the Grand Duchy of Finland
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The governorates of the Grand Duchy of Finland were the administrative division of the Grand Duchy of Finland as part of the Russian Empire from 1809 to 1917. The administrative division of Finland followed the Russian imperial model with governorates (Russian:, Swedish: l n, Finnish: l ni) headed by governors. However few changes were made and as the language of the administrators was still Swedish the old terminology from during the Swedish time continued in local use. The Vyborg Governorate was not initially part of the grand duchy, but in 1812 it was transferred from Russia proper to Finland.
