The Pilzno district was a political district in the crown land of Galicia and Lodomeria . Its area covered parts of western Galicia in what is now Poland ( Powiat Dębica ), the seat of the district administration was the city of Pilzno . After the First World War , Austria had to cede the entire district to Poland, large parts of which can be found today in the Powiat Dębicki .
It bordered on the north by the district Mielec , on the east by the district Ropczyce , in the southeast of the district Strzyżów , on the south by the district Jasło and in the west to the district Tarnów .
A forerunner of the later district (administrative and judicial authority at the same time) was created at the end of 1850, the district administration Pilsno was subordinate to the government area of Kraków and comprised the following judicial districts:
- Pilsno judicial district
- Brzostek judicial district
- Radomyśl judicial district
After the announcement in 1854, on September 29, 1855, the Pilzno District Office (still responsible for administration and jurisdiction) within the Tarnów District was established.
After the district offices were abolished at the end of October 1865 and their competencies were transferred to the district offices , the division of the country into two administrative areas was also abolished after the Austro-Hungarian Compromise in 1867. In addition, in the course of the separation of the political from the judicial administration, separate administrative and judicial authorities were created. While the judicial division remained largely unaffected, municipalities of several judicial districts were combined into administrative districts.
The new political district of Pilzno was formed from the following districts:
- Pilzno district (with 32 municipalities)
- Parts of the Dembica district (with 25 municipalities)
