History

Banner of the Counts of Pallars

The County of Pallars was a county during the ninth and tenth centuries. Later both the County of Pallars Jussà (Lower Pallars) and the County of Pallars Sobirà (Upper Pallars) became counties of the Hispanic March during the eleventh and twelfth centuries.[3]

In 1936 the Pallars was split into the Pallars Jussà and Pallars Sobirà present-day administrative divisions. The historical Ribagorça territories administered by the Generalitat de Catalunya were added to the newly created Pallars Jussà comarca.[4] In 1990 the Ribagorça area was segregated from the Pallars Jussà comarca and was established as the Alta Ribagorça.[5]
