  Cardiganshire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cardiganshire (Sir Aberteifi in Welsh) is a traditional county in Wales that came into being in 1282.
Cardiganshire is a maritime county bounded to the west by Cardigan Bay, to the north by Merionethshire, to the east by Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire and Brecknockshire, and to the south by Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.
Cardiganshire's county council created in 1888 was abolished in 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972 — and it was succeeded by the district of Ceredigion in the administrative county of Dyfed.
