The Quadripoint Quiz (with a map)

A quadripoint is a border point where four different territories meet. A number of these points exist among the first-level subdivisions of the countries of the world. 12 of them are marked by orange dots on this map. Can you name the provinces, states, counties, regions, departments, governorates, oblasts, and voivodeships that come together at each of these quadripoints?

Some quadripoints involve subdivisions from multiple countries. In the cases where only one subdivision from a given country is involved, either the subdivision name or the country name is accepted
It turns out that defining and surveying borders is a messy process. Consequently, the existence of many of these quadripoints is disputed or poorly defined. For the purposes of this quiz, I selected points from this list on Wikipedia, and checked each one on OpenStreetMap to verify its existence. Other maps may not show them as true quadripoints, but hey, we're all here to have fun – let's just call it close enough!
