Königsegg-Rothenfels was a German state in far southwestern Bavaria, Germany, located north of Austria and west of Baden-Württemberg. It was created as a partition of the Barony of Königsegg in 1622, and was raised to a County seven years later. It was absorbed by Austria in 1804, before being granted to Bavaria by France during the Napoleonic Wars.
