Königsegg-Aulendorf was a county of southeastern Baden-Württemberg, Germany, ruled by the House of Königsegg. The territories of Königsegg-Aulendorf by 1806 were four separate exclaves, centred around Königsegg in the west, Aulendorf in the east, and two smaller territories north and south of the Teutonic Knights' territory at Altshausen. Königsegg-Aulendorf was created as a Baronial partition of the Barony of Königsegg, and was raised to a County in 1629. Königsegg-Aulendorf was mediatised to Württemberg in 1806.
