First posted on May 30th 2009, last revised on June 28th 2010







History and Administrative Division . The Petrine administrative reform of 1708 left Saratov within Kazan Gubernia. A larger Saratov Gubernia was established in 1780, a smaller Saratov Gubernia in 1797; in 1851 Samara Gubernia was formed from territory previously belonging to Saratov, Orenburg and Stavropol Gubernia.
Samara Gubernia bordered on Kazan and Ufa Gubernia in the north, on Orenburg Gubernia in the east, on Astrakhan Gubernia and the Ural Cossack Host in the south, on Saratov amd Simbirsk Gubernia in the west. Samara Gubernia was divided in 7 Uyezds (districts) : Bugulma, Buguruslan, Busuluk, Nikolayevsk, Novo-Ussensk, Samara and Stavropol.
Following the Russian Revolution, Samara Gubernia became part of the RSFSR.


Population . The population was 1,320,000 in 1851, 1,690,800 in 1867, 2,259,600 in 1885, 3,600,900 in 1915 (Lahmeyer). Samara Gubernia was frontier land, which in the 19th century saw significant immigration, among which featured German colonists.
