A Fögderi was an administrative geographical area with the primary purpose of tax collection and law enforcement. Historically the läns were divided into fögderier, with a Kronofogden as the chairman (or head officer) over the fögderi. The Kronofogdens most important responsibility was tax collection but he also was executor over legal complaints both for the Crown or private individuals. He was the head police chief and prosecutor for the Härad. The Kronofogden was also called Befallningsman or Kronobefallningsman. Do not confuse these titles with the Konungens Befallningshavande (KB) who was the county governor.  <br>
