Dantumadiel (West Frisian, official since January 1, 2009, Dutch: Dantumadeel (About this sound pronunciation )) is a municipality in the province of Friesland (Fryslân) in the Netherlands. Dantumadiel is a rural municipality characterized by agriculture.



The first time Dantumadiel is mentioned was in a document from 1242. In that time Dantumadiel, or Donthmadeil as it was then known, was a part of the Winninghe district, the northern part of Oostergo. The grietenij (municipality) Dantumadeel was lead by a grietman (mayor) who was holding office in Rinsumageast and Dantumawoude. The Dutch Municipalities Act of 1851 (Dutch: Gemeentewet van 1851) abolished the grietenijen, which automatically became gemeenten (municipalities) headed by a mayor.[1]
