Articles requiring particular elements

Welcome to the Austria-Hungary subdivisions work group of WikiProject Former countries.

Scope[edit]

The aim of this work group is to improve the quality and accessibility of articles related to the historic subdivisions of the countries in Austria-Hungary. The empires and their component states are handled by the Austria-Hungary task force, but the subdivisions of these states, as well as the successor states included by the task force, are in the scope of this work group.

Cisleithania[edit]

Transleithania[edit]

The former Hungarian counties Wikiproject specializing on just the historical counties of Hungary, was a forerunner to this work group and whose members are currently listed as inactive. We would love to see you come back:

Article structure[edit]

Hungarian counties[edit]

Article names should ideally be just the Hungarian name of the county (e.g. Hont). There are some reasons to deviate:

  • In Slovakia the Slovak versions of the names are still used very often, so the Slovak names are used for the titles.
  • In case something else with the same name exists (a town) the title becomes X (county). In case a modern Hungarian county exists with the same name, the old county's article will have "former county" in the title, e.g. Békés (former county). Special case: Arad (Hungarian county).

Brief description: Kis-Küküllő is the name of a historic administrative county (comitatus) of the Kingdom of Hungary. Its territory is presently in central Romania (central Transylvania). Kis-Küküllő is the Hungarian name for the Târnava Mică River. The capital of the county was Târnăveni (Romanian, Dicsőszentmárton in Hungarian).
