The Georgia-Imeretia Governorate (Russian: Грузино-Имеретинская губерния) was a short-lived governorate (guberniya) of the Russian Empire, located in the Caucasus and administered from Tiflis (Tbilisi). Roughly corresponding to modern Georgia and parts of Armenia and Azerbaijan, it was created in 1840 from the territory of the Georgia Governorate and the oblasts of Imeretia and Armenia.

In 1846 the Imperial administration of the Caucasus was reorganized and the Georgia-Imeretia Governorate was abolished, with its territory forming the new governorates of Tiflis and Kutaisi.

Administrative divisions

At its creation the Georgia-Imeretia Governorate contained eight uyezds:

  • Akhaltsikhe
  • Belokan (from 1844 a separate Jaro-Belokan Okrug)
  • Guria
  • Gori
  • Elisabethpol
  • Kutaisi
  • Telavi
