Caernarfonshire, uno de los tradicionales condados de Gales

Caernarfonshire o Caernarvonshire (en galés: Sir Gaernarfon) es uno de los trece condados históricos de Gales, en el Reino Unido.

Limita al norte y al occidente con el Mar de Irlanda, al oriente con Denbighshire, y al suroriente con Merionethshire. Está separado al noroccidente de Anglesey por el Estrecho de Menai.

Tras ser disuelta el 1 de abril de 1974, su territorio fue dividio entre dos nuevas autoridades unitarias, pasando su zona occdental a Gwynedd y la oriental Conwy.

En 1961 tenía un área de 364.108 acres (es decir 1.473 km²) y una población de 121.767 habitantes.[1]

Fue creado en 1284 con el Estatuto de Rhuddlan, emitido tras la conquista de la península por los ejércitos ingleses, al mando de Eduardo I.
