Odense County
Odense County ( ) is a former province in Denmarkmarker, located on the northern half of the island of Funenmarker in central Denmark. Odense County was established in 1806 and abolished in 1970 when it merged with Svendborg County forming the new Funen County.

In 1662, the north Funen area was organized as a total of four counties: Odensegård, Rugård, Assens, and Hindsgavl. The four counties merged in 1806 forming Odense County, also including the Hindsholmmarker peninsula from the former Nyborg County. This situation lasted from 1806 to 1970 when Odense and Svendborg merged to form Funen County.

Odense County featured the market towns (købstæder) of Assens, Bogensemarker, Kertemindemarker, Middelfartmarker, and Odensemarker. In spiritual matters, the county belonged to the Diocese of Funen.
