Derbent Governorate

The Derbent Governorate (Russian: Дербентская губерния) was a short-lived governorate (guberniya) of the Russian Empire in 1846–1860.

It was established by the decree of 14 December 1846 of Nicholas I of Russia. In accordance with the "Regulations on the Administration of the Dagestan Oblast" (Положением об управлении Дагестанской областью, 5 April 1860), the Derbent Governorate was abolished, and most of the area became part of the Dagestan Oblast.
