Prince George's County is a county located in the U.S. state of Maryland, immediately north, east, and south of Washington, D.C. As of 2009 U.S. Census Bureau estimates, it has a population of 834,560[1] and is the wealthiest county in the nation with an African-American majority.[2][3]

The county was named for Prince George of Denmark (1653–1708), husband of Queen Anne of Great Britain and brother of King Christian V of Denmark and Norway. It is frequently referred to as 'P.G.' or 'P.G. County,' an abbreviation which is viewed as pejorative by some residents.[4]
