Wales - Counties List

Welsh counties are not as numerous as the English ones, which shouldn’t be surprising because of the size difference between England and Wales. Their history, however, is just as complex and at times, confusing.

Then there are 8 so-called preserved counties, historical regions that are used for ceremonial purposes. Even though they were abolished in 1994, a representative of the Queen is still appointed to the rank of Lord Lieutenant in order to represent her interest, one for each preserved county.

Finally, there are historic counties - currently not filling any formal function but a testament of the changes that swept through Wales in the past centuries.
