A Voivodship (Romanian: Voievodat, Polish: Województwo, Serbian: Vojvodstvo or Vojvodina) was a feudal state in medieval Romania, Hungary, Poland, Russia and Serbia (see Vojvodina), ruled by a Voivod. Since the Voivod was initially the military commander next to the ruler, a voivodship meant the whole territory of Poland. During the feudal partition, each from small prinicpalities had its own voivod, and therefore after the reunification the territory was called a voivodship.
