History

Skaraborg County was created in 1634 when the Ståthållardömet was divided into the Counties of Skaraborg and Älvsborg. The name of the County has its origins with the authority based on the residence city of Skara. In 1660 the authority base was changed to the residence city of Mariestad and the County is sometimes referred to as Mariestad County.
