Kreis Wreschen (Polish: Powiat wrzesiński) was a county in the southern administrative district of Posen, in the Prussian province of Posen. It presently lies in the eastern part of Polish region of Greater Poland Voivodeship.

History[edit]

The area around the two Polish towns of Września and Pyzdry were ceded to the Kingdom of Prussia in the aftermath of the Vienna Congress. They formed the newly created County of Pyzdry (Ger: Kreis Peysern). The administrative seat was Pyzdry.

On November 11, 1817 the border was corrected and the eastern rim of the county was ceded to Congress Poland, Wreschen (Września) became the new administrative seat. Consequently the name was changed to Kreis Wreschen (Wreschen County) on July 31, 1819.
