English:  Maps of English counties which are territorial divisions of wikipedia:England for the purposes of administrative, political and geographical demarcation. Many current counties have foundations in older divisions such as the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. The name county originates in the area formerly or nominally administered by a wikipedia:Count, although in Britain the situation is complicated by the fact that the title Count has been replaced in normal usage by the older Saxon title of wikipedia:Earl. An Earl's wife, however, bears the title of Countess.

The names, boundaries and functions of these divisions have changed considerably in modern times. Indeed, a series of local government reforms from the 19th century onwards has left the exact definition of the term 'county' ambiguous. The term "counties of England" does not, therefore, refer to a unique canonical set of names or boundaries; in formal use, the type of county relevant to the specific task and period is explicitly stated e.g. ceremonial county, registration county, historic county or former postal county.
