Mazovia

 

(Polish Mazowsze), a historical region of Poland, located along the middle reaches of the Vistula River and the lower courses of the Narew and Bug rivers. It took its name from a Polish tribe, the Mazovians, who settled here between the ninth and llth centuries. During the tenth century Mazovia was an independent principality. Beginning in the mid-13th century it was divided into small feudal appanages, which between the 14th and 16th centuries gradually came under the rule of the Polish kings, a process that was completed in 1526. From the 16th to the 18th century Mazovia was divided into the Rawa, Plock, and Mazowieckie województwos (provinces). The name “Mazovia” was also applied to the Mazowieckie Województwo.
