The historic county of Monmouthshire was formed from the Welsh Marches by the Laws in Wales Act 1535,
Gloucestershire to the east, Herefordshire to the northeast, Brecknockshire to the north, and
Glamorgan to the west.
The second Laws in Wales Act of 1542 enumerated the counties of Wales and omitted
Monmouthshire, which led
to ambiguity as to whether the county was part of Wales or England. Since local
government changes in April 1974
the area has been placed definitively in Wales.
