History

Prior to 1658 the area belonged to Denmark as part of the Province of Skåne. In 1669 the counties of Helsingborg and Landskrona were combined to create Malmöhus County. Denmark tried to reclaim the area between 1675 and 1678 after which Denmark was forced through political intervention to give up its claim. Between 1658 and 1720 the area was not officially part of the Swedish kingdom (although it was controlled by a Swedish governor). Beginning in 1997 the counties of Malmöhus and Kristianstad were combined into one county called Skåne County.

Malmöhus County belongs to Skåne Province.
