POLAND

 

(Kingdom of Poland, also known as Congress Poland)

 

1832

 

This handsomely colored map was printed in 1832 in New Haven, Connecticut.

 

Although Poland did not exist as an independent country after the final partition in 1795, it was partially restored under Napoleon in 1807 as the Duchy of Warsaw from the Polish lands ceded by the Kingdom of Prussia under the terms of the Treaties of Tilsit. The duchy was held in personal union by one of Napoleon's allies, King Frederick Augustus I of Saxony. Following Napoleon's failed invasion of Russia, the duchy was occupied by Prussian and Russian troops until 1815, when it was formally partitioned between the two countries at the Congress of Vienna.

 

The Kingdom of Poland (informally known as Congress Poland or Russian Poland), was created out of the Duchy of Warsaw in 1815 by the Congress of Vienna, as a personal union of the Russian parcel of Poland with the Russian Empire. It was gradually politically integrated into Russia over the course of the 19th century, made an official part of the Russian Empire in 1867, and finally replaced during the Great War by the Central Powers in 1915 with the theoretically existing Regency Kingdom of Poland.

Although officially the Kingdom of Poland was a state with considerable political autonomy guaranteed by a liberal constitution, its rulers, the Russian Emperors, generally disregarded any restrictions on their power. Thus effectively it was little more than a puppet state of the Russian Empire.
