In 1900, Romania was a young kingdom (since 1881). In comparison with today's map, it contained most of Moldova, but the Austro-Hungarian Empire owned Transylvania, which now forms its northwest section. It acquired additional territory, including Transylvania, during the Balkan Wars and World War I. World War II caused a net loss of territory, establishing the present-day boundaries.

  1. 1990-02-22: In spelling reform, ī changed to ā in the names of two counties (Dāmbovița, and Vālcea) and five capital cities (Rāmnicu Vālcea, Sfāntu Gheorghe, Tārgu Jiu, Tārgu Mureș, and Tārgoviște). Sectorul Agricol Ilfov (Ilfov Agricultural Sector) split from Bucharest municipality as a local government with county rank, but remained subordinate to Bucharest.
  2. 1997-05-09: Ilfov county split from Bucharest municipality (former HASC code RO.BU) to resume full county rank. The ISO code for Bucharest did not change.
  3. 2007-01-01: Romania joined the European Union.

Other names of subdivisions: 

According to Wikipedia (source [4]), the Romanian Academy considers the letters ș and ț to be correct for writing Romanian, and not ş and ţ. The difference is whether the diacritical marks below the s and t are commas (correct) or cedillas (wrong). Apparently a lot of people are using cedillas.

Where the county name is the same as its capital, the German name of the capital (dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire) is given.
