?inutul Suceava was one of the ten Romanian administrative regions (?inuturi) created on August 14, 1938, as a part of King Carol II's administrative reform. From August 14, 1938, to June 28, 1940, it included the whole of Bukovina, a county of Bessarabia (Hotin) and a county of Moldavia (Dorohoi). It was named after the river Suceava. Its administrative capital was the city of Cern?u?i. After its northern part (the counties Cern?u?i, Storojine? and Hotin, as well as parts of the counties R?d?u?i and Dorohoi) was ceded to the USSR on June 28, 1940, ?inutul Suceava was restructured on September 16, 1940, when Baia county became a part of the region, and abolished only a few days latter, on September 22, 1940. ?inutul Suceava had two governors: Gheorghe Alexianu (August 14, 1938-February 1, 1939) and Gheorghe Flondor (February 1, 1939-September 22, 1940). Alexianu's mandate was marked by the suppression of ethnic minority and Jewish rights.
The coat of arms consists of seven pallets, four of gules and three of azure, representing the former seven counties (jude?e) of Greater Romania which it included (of the total 71). Over the pallets there is a castle, representing the medieval citadel in Suceava.
The administrative reform of August 14, 1938, kept the existing 71 counties, but conveyed the marrow of their prerogatives to the news regions.
