From the late 1700s until the end of WW I, Poland did not exist as a
country. It was divided among the Russian, German (Prussian), and
Austrian Empires. These divisions were known as Partitions.
There was Russian-Poland, German-Poland, and Austrian-Poland.
Galicia was formerly a Austrian Kronland and part of Austro-Hungarian
Monarchy (1867-1918). Sometimes referred to as Austrian Poland.
Other names for the area were Galicja (Polish), Galizien (German),
Halychyna (Ukrainian) and Rus Halicka (Polish).
In 1918, Galicia was annexed to Poland as "Kleinpolen" (Malopolska [P],
Little Poland [E)
After the 1939 partition of Poland by Germany and Russia, East Galicia
became part of Ukraine while West Galicia remained in Poland as part of
the provisional government of Warsaw.
Its former territories are now shared between southern Poland and
Under a Polish-Soviet agreement in 1945, Galicia was assigned to the
USSR and incorporated into the Ukrainian SSR.
