One of the oldest Polish settlements, Radom probably originated as an assembly place for local diets.
It was the seat of Polish diets (14th–16th cent.), of a tribunal (1613–1766), and of the Confederation of Radom (1767), which asked Catherine II of Russia to guarantee the old Polish constitution.
Radom passed to Austria in 1795 and to Russia in 1815.
