List of Galician rulers


This is a list of rulers and officials of the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, a state under the Habsburg Monarchy from 1772 to 1918. From the Partitions of Poland starting in September 1772 up to the fall of Austria-Hungary in 1918, the province was directly subordinate to the Emperors of Austria and the government in Vienna, and then a local Galicia Diet in Lemberg, hence the list includes governors, ministers and other people in charge of the local administration.
