The former department of Corse (20) was divided on 1 January 1976
into Corse-du-Sud (South Corsica) and
Haute-Corse (Upper Corsica). The two
departments already existed in 1793-1811, as Liamone and Golo (two rivers' names), respectively.
The Collectivity of Corsica was established on 1 January 2018 after the merger of the former Territorial Collectivity of Corsica with the Departemental Councils of Haute-Corse and Corse-du-Sud.
