The Governorate of the Río de la Platamarker ( ) was a colonial administration created in 1549 by Spainmarker in the area around the Río de la Platamarker.

It was at first simply a renaming of the Governorate of New Andalusia and included all of the land between 470 and 670 leagues south of the mouth of the Río Santiago along the Pacificmarker coast. After 1617, Paraguaymarker was separated under a separate administration (Asuncionmarker had been the capital of the governorate since Juan de Ayolas.)

After the founding of the Viceroyalty of Peru, the governorate was under its authority until the formation of the independent Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata in 1776. Similarly, it was under the jurisdiction of the Royal Audience of Charcas until the formation of the independent Royal Audience of Buenos Aires from 1661 to 1671 and after 1783.
