I have never heard of it referred to as such at anytime but will defer to
others who may have seen documentation to the contrary. I believe that the
terms Russian Poland and Congress Poland both apply to post Napoleonic rule
- 1815 to WW I. Since Volhynia was not taken by Napoleon, it was not
impacted by the Congress of Vienna.
Note that ALL of Volhynia was part of Poland between 1569 and 1795; the
western part between WW I & WW II.
