It came into being as a result of the Cossack-Polish War and at first consisted of most of central Ukraine as well as part of Belorussia. By 1663 the Hetman State in Right-Bank Ukraine came under Polish domination, while the Left-Bank Ukraine came under Muscovite control. After four years of civil war the partition of the Hetmanate was confirmed by the Treaty of Andrusovo in 1667 and the Eternal Peace of 1686. After Poland abolished the Right-Bank Hetmanate in 1700, only the Left-Bank Hetmanate was left with Chernihiv voivodeship and part of Kiev voivodeship. From 1654, the Hetmanate was nominally a vassal of Muscovy. During its existence the Hetmanate exibited elements of both republican and monarchal types of government. The Hetman was the head of state, commander in chief of the Cossack army, and head of the entire administrative, judicial, and military apparatus. At the local level the state was organized on the basis of the Cossack military organizations into regiments and companies, which mirrored that of the central government. The legal system of the state was derived from a variety of sources, particularly the 1648 Polish edition of the Lithuanian Statute. During the 18th century the increasing political control of the Hetmanate by Russia precluded the independent evolution of its administrative, financial, and judicial institutions. During Catherine II's reign (1762-1796) Ukrainian autonomy was progressively destroyed: the office of hetman was abolished in 1764 by Russia and replaced by the Malorosiĭsʹka kolegii͡a [Little Russian Collegium] [no publs. in LC data base]. By 1782 the Cossack regiments were replaced by viceregencies and Russian political and administrative institutions replaced those of the Hetmanate: serfdom was introduced, the cossacks lost what remained of their special status, and the starshyna [Cossack nobility] were partially integrated into the Russian nobility)
