Initially, there were two sub-divisions in Estonia. They were the parish and county. There were villages in the parish. On the other hand there were a number of parishes under the county. A number of important counties emerged in the 13th century. But after being divided among Livonian Order, Bishopric of Osel-Wiek, Denmark and Bishopric of Dorpat, the autonomy of the parishes and counties came to an end. After going through a number of events, the counties of Estonia were re-established in 1990.
