A judeţ is an administrative division in Romania and was also used for some time in Moldova. It is commonly translated to English as "county".
Its name is derived from Romanian jude (< Latin "judicis"), which was an office with administrative and judicial functions in the Danubian Principalities, roughly corresponding to both judge and mayor.
