Administrative history[eedit | eedit soorce]

In the 9t century, the aurie wis ruled bi the Bulgarian-Slavic dukes Glad (in the east) and Salan (in the wast), while in the 11t century, the eastren pairt o the aurie wis ruled bi duke Ahtum. Frae 11t tae 16t century, during the admeenistration o the medieval Kinrick o Hungary, the aurie wis dividit atween the Csanadiensis County, Temesiensis County and Torontaliensis County in the east, an Csongradiensis County, Bacsensis County and Bodrogiensis County in the wast. Pairt o the aurie wis an aa locatit within the Cumania region. In 1526-1527, the aurie wis ruled bi the independent Serb ruler, emperor Jovan Nenad, while during Ottoman admeenistration (16t-18t century), it wis dividit atween the Temeşvar Eyalet in the east an the Sanjak of Segedin in the wast.

During Habsburg admeenistration (18t century), the aurie wis dividit atween the Banat of Temeswar in the east an the Military Frontier in the wast. Syne the abolishment o the Theiß-Marosch section o the Military Frontier (in 1751), and abolishment o the Banat of Temeswar (in 1778), the aurie wis dividit atween the Torontal County in the east an the Batsch-Bodrog County in the wast, wi a smaw pairt of it that wis locatit within the Tschongrad County. Much o the aurie wis pairt o the autonomous districts of Velika Kikinda (existit frae 1774 tae 1876 within the Torontal County) in the east and Potisje (existit frae 1751 tae 1848 within the Batsch-Bodrog County) in the wast. In 1850s, the aurie wis dividit atween the Veliki Bečkerek District in the east and Sombor and Novi Sad districts in the wast. Efter 1860, it wis again dividit atween Torontal, Batsch-Bodrog and Tschongrad counties.

During the royal Serb-Croat-Slovene (Yugoslav) admeenistration (1918-1941), the aurie wis initially (frae 1918 tae 1922) dividit atween the Veliki Bečkerek County in the east an the Novi Sad County in the wast. Frae 1922 tae 1929, it wis pairt o the Belgrade Oblast, an frae 1929 tae 1941 pairt o the Danube Banovina.

Durin the German-Hungarian Axis occupation (1941-1944), the aurie wis dividit atween the Banat autonomous region (pairt o German-occupee'd puppet state o Serbie) in the east an the Bács-Bodrog Coonty (an admeenistrative unit of Horthy's Hungary) in the wast. Initially, the Banat region wis pairt o the rump Danube Banovina (whose caipital wis muivit tae Smederevo), but syne December 1941, it wis organized as ane o the destricts o Serbie an wis offeecially namit the Destrict o Veliki Bečkerek.
