Zagreb (in Croatian) or Zágráb (in Hungarian), Agram (in German) was the name of a historic administrative county (comitatus) of the autonomous region Croatia-Slavonia within the Kingdom of Hungary. Its territory is presently in northern Croatia. The capital of the county was Zagreb (Croatian, in Hungarian: "Zágráb"). __TOC__


Zágráb county shared borders with the Austrian lands Styria, Carniola and Bosnia-Herzegovina and the Hungarian counties Varasd, Belovár-Körös, Pozsega and Modrus-Fiume (all in Croatia-Slavonia). The river Sava flows through the county. Its area was 7210 km² around 1910.


The territory of Zágráb county, like the rest of Croatia, became part of the Kingdom of Hungary in the 12th century, and within it part of the Habsburg Monarchy in 1526. Zágráb county was re-established after it was liberated from Ottoman occupation in the early 18th century. In 1918 (confirmed by the Treaty of Trianon 1920), the county became part of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Yugoslavia). Since 1991, when Croatia became independent from Yugoslavia, the county is part of the Republic of Croatia.


In 1910, the population of the county was 594,052.

Population by language (1910 census):
*Croatian = 445,870
*Serbian = 122,558
*Hungarian = 6,068
*German = 6,016
