Csanád is the name of a historic administrative county (comitatus) of the Kingdom of Hungary. Its territory is presently in western Romania and southeastern Hungary. The capital of the county was Makó.
Csanád county was formed before the 11th century and was named after Castle Csanád, which in turn was named after its first comes, a cousin of Saint Stephen. The Diocese of Csanád was one of the oldest in Hungary. Its first bishop was Saint Gellért.
In 1920 the Treaty of Trianon assigned a small area in the southeast of the county (Nădlac and Şeitin) to Romania. The rest of the county was united with parts of Torontál county (a small area south of Szeged) and Arad county (a small area south of Békéscsaba) to form the new county Csanád-Arad-Torontál.
According to the census of 1900 140,007 people lived in the county. Therefore Csanád county was one of the most densely populated counties of the Hungarian Kingdom. Among them were 103,242 (73.2%) Hungarians, 1182 (0.8%) Germans, 17,274 (12.3%) Slovaks und 13,982 (10 %) Romanians and 3981 Serbs (2.8%). The Hungarians formed an ethnic majority in every district except for the district Nagylak. The main part of the Slovaks and Romanians lived in the district Nagylak, the Serbs in the district Battonya. 71,610 of the inhabitants were Catholics, 25,234 Calvinists, 18,384 Lutherans, 4520 Greek Catholics, 16,567 Orthodox and 3254 Jews.
In the early 20th century, the subdivisions of Csanád county were:
