The County of Bentheim was a state of the Holy Roman Empire, located in the south-west corner of today’s Lower Saxony, Germany. The county’s borders corresponded largely to those of the modern administrative district of Grafschaft Bentheim.
Geographically, Bentheim is composed largely of fenland, and early settlement was concentrated along the banks of the rivers which pass through the county. Deposits of Bentheim sandstone formed the basis of a profitable export trade to other parts of present-day Germany and the Netherlands.
