The three lands of Denmark historically formed the Danish kingdommarker from its unification and consolidation in the 9th century:

Each of the lands retained their own thing and statute laws until late medieval time (Scanian Law, Zealandic Law and Jutlandic Law). Although Denmark was a unified kingdom, the custom of rendering homage to the King at the three individual assemblies remained. A remnant is the current division of Denmark into two High Court districts, the Eastern and Western High Court.

During the early 19th century, Zealandmarker and Fynmarker became administratively united as Østifterne with a provincial assembly in Roskilde. Jutland, The Islands and Bornholm remains an informal subdivision still used, notably in meteorology and public statistics. Bornholmmarker is the only part to represent Scania after the rest of the region was lost to Swedenmarker in 1658.

In recent decades, the less specific division between Eastern and Western Denmark has also become common, for example when describing logistic, economic and political patterns. Funen may be attributed to both the eastern and western part of the country, the border line being either the Great Beltmarker or the Little Beltmarker.
