Lieutenancy areas are the separate areas of the United Kingdom appointed a Lord Lieutenant - the representative of the British monarch. In many cases they have similar demarcation and naming to, but are not necessarily conterminate with, the counties of the United Kingdom.

Origin

In England, Lieutenancy areas are colloquially known as the ceremonial counties, although this phrase does not appear in any legislation referring to them. The Lieutenancy areas of Scotland are subdivisions of Scotland that are more or less based on the former counties of Scotland, making use of their cities as separate entities. [The Lord-Lieutenants (Scotland) Order 1996, Statutory Instrument 1996 No. 731 (S.83)] In Wales, the Lieutenancy areas are known as the preserved counties of Wales and are based on the counties that were use for Lieutenancy and local government until 1996. The Lieutenancy areas of Northern Ireland correspond to the six counties and two former county boroughs.
