It is well known that the transdanubian counties of Hungary, Zala and Somogy, as royal institutions of the Árpáds definitely had some impact on the making of Hungarian administration of the Sclavonian region during the 12th-13th centuries. Nevertheless, even though defining the exact (temporal and spatial) range of this impact is not easy, mosdy because of the sporadic nature of the available historical sources, selective interpretations gave a free range of assumptions in the historical literature. In this paper I try to define of the exact temporal and spatial existence of the two Hungarian counties beyond the river Drava by an almost „positivistic" approach: by using all the fragments of available diplomatic sources I try to find the „exact boundaries" of Zala and Somogy counries within the Sclavonain region. In the case of Zala, the temporal frame of the county's verifiable existence in Sclavonia could only be defined between 1210 and the 1270s, while in the case of Somogy its provable existence south of the river Drava cannot be traced back earlier than the foundation of the Zagrabian diocese, and is not beyond the 1270s as well. However, it is more important that the spatial (territorial) extension of the two counties in the Sclavonian territory within this temporal frame could be defined more precisely than before. Thus, possessions related to Zala county could be found in the Muraköz (Medimurje) and only within a slim belt south of the river Drava, while all of the possessions related to Somogy can only be detected within the boundaries defined by the Velika — Cesma — Moslavacka gora — Ilova region, and a small 'enclave' near Vaska beyonf that. Moreover, in the case of Somogy, its southern tcrriory had some special institutional aspects until the 1270s: the jurisdiction over this territory was held by the count of Somogy, but the comitatus of Garic, Gordova, Cesmice and (probably) Zdenc also had some institutional/ social framework of their own. Nevertheless, the two transdanubian county's southern territories slowly became part of Körös (Krizevci) county's during the 13th century, thus Zala and Somogy jurisdiction ceased to exist in the medieval Sclavonia by the end of the Árpád era.
