Administrative Divisions Of Wales
For local government purposes, Wales has since 1 April 1996 been divided into 22 single-tier PRINCIPAL AREAS. The elected councils of these areas are responsible for the provision of all local government services, including education, social work, environmental protection, and most highways. Below these there are also (in most, but not all, parts of the principal areas) elected community councils to which responsibility for specific aspects of the application of local policy may be devolved. The principal areas are variously styled as _COUNTY_, _COUNTY BOROUGH_, _CITY_ or _CITY AND COUNTY_, although this is a distinction not always respected in the media, including the BBC , which refers to all 22 areas simply as counties. The Queen appoints a Lord Lieutenant to represent her in each of the eight preserved counties of Wales , which are combinations of principal areas retained for ceremonial purposes

Petty Kingdom
A PETTY KINGDOM is a kingdom described as minor or "petty" by contrast to an empire or unified kingdom that either preceded or succeeded it (e.g. the numerous kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England unified into the Kingdom of England in the 10th century, or the numerous Gaelic kingdoms of Ireland unified under the Kingdom of England as the Kingdom of Ireland in the 16th). Alternatively, a petty kingdom would be a minor kingdom in the immediate vicinity of larger kingdoms, such as the medieval Kingdom of Mann and the Isles
