It was created in 1970 from the former counties of Århus, Randers, and part of Skanderborg, and measureed some 1761 square miles. The land ws low and fertile, supporting a very productive agriculture. The northern part of the county commune featured many castles and estates, and to the southeast lies the Silkeborg Lake district. The 2004 estimated population was 651,100. In 2007, all counties in Denmark were eliminated and five large regions created.
