Historical states[eedit | eedit soorce]

Prior tae the Federal War (1859–1863), Venezuela wis dividit intae provinces rather than states (see Provinces o Venezuela). The victorious forces wur supposed tae grant mair autonomy tae the individual states, but this wis no implementit.

Frae 1863 tae the early 1900s thare wur numerous territorial chynges, includin the merger an splittin o states, but frae then till the 1990s the states wur left unchyngit. States that existit durin this time includit Guzmán Blanco State (1873–1889). Oreeginally a renamit Aragua State, in 1881 the states o Miranda, Guárico, Nueva Esparta an the Vargas depairtment o the Federal Destrict wur mergit intae the state. This wis pairt o a territorial reorganisation reducin the nummer o states frae 20 tae 9, which wis reversed in 1901.

Recent years hae seen the creation o three new states: Delta Amacuro (1991), Amazonas (1994), an Vargas (1998).
