Hunyad county was formed in the Middle Ages. It was first attested in 1265 as Hungnod by the Papal Quitrent Register. In 1876, when the administrative structure of Transylvania was changed, its territory was modified. In 1918 (confirmed by the Treaty of Trianon 1920), the county became part of Romania. Most of its territory lies in the present Romanian county Hunedoara; a strip in the east is now part of Alba; a strip in the west is now part of Caraș-Severin County (the commune Băuţar).
