Tainan County was a county of the Republic of China in southern Taiwan before it merged with the provincial Tainan City to form a new special municipality in 2010. The county capital was Xinying City.

History[edit]

Tainan County was established in Taiwan Province on 7 January 1946 after the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China in October 1945. It merged with the city of Tainan on 25 December 2010 to form a single special municipality.[1]

Administration[edit]

At the time it merged with city of Tainan, Tainan County administered two cities, seven urban townships and 22 rural townships. All of these became districts of the city of Tainan.
