Prince George's was erected from Calvert and Charles counties in 1695 (Chapter 13, Acts of
1695, May Session). The County was named for Prince George of Denmark (1653-1708), who was the brother of Christian
V (1646-1699), king of Denmark and Norway. Prince George was the husband of Queen Anne (1665-1714), who ruled Great
Britain and Ireland from 1702 to 1714. In 1749, part of northern Prince George?s County was taken to establish
Frederick County. In 1777,
parts of Prince George?s and Frederick counties were taken to establish Montgomery County.
