Krassó-Szörény (Hungarian: Krassó-Szörény, Romanian: Caraş-Severin, Serbian: Karaš-Severin or Караш-Северин) is the name of administrative county (comitatus) of the historic Kingdom of Hungary. Its territory is presently mostly located in south-western Romania, with one small part which is located in Serbia. The capital of the county was Lugoj (Lugos). Its name originates from one of the Slavic tribes which settled the area in the 600s AD - the Severyans.
Krassó-Szörény county was located in the Banat region. It shared borders with the Kingdom of Serbia and the Hungarian counties Temes, Arad and Hunyad. The river Danube formed its southern border, and the river Mureş (Maros) its northern border. The river Timiş flowed through the county. Its area was 11,032 km² around 1910.
In 1920 by the Treaty of Trianon most of the county was assigned to Romania, with one small part which was assigned to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The north of the county (including Lugoj) is now part of the Romanian county Timiş, except a 10 km wide strip along the river Mureş, which is in the county Arad. The rest now forms the county Caraş-Severin, except the city Orşova, which is in Mehedinţi county.
According to the census of 1910, the county had 466,147 inhabitants.
