The county seat was Făgăraș.
After World War I, as a result of the Treaty of Trianon, Fogaras County along with most of Transylvania was transferred from the Kingdom of Hungary to Romania, Făgăraş County was created with an identical territory.
Based on the 1923 Romanian Constitution and the Law of Administrative Unification of 1925, the name of the county remained as it was, but the territory was reorganized.
Its capital remained Făgăraş.
The new county divided into three administrative districts (Romanian: plăși), it neighbored Târnava-Mare County to the north, Brașov County to the east, Muscel and Argeș counties to the south, and Sibiu County to the west.
In World War II, the county was invaded and occupied by Soviet forces.
As in other parts of the country in 1945, part of the Saxon population of Făgăraş County was deported to the Soviet Union, where some survivors returned after about five years.
Following the administrative and territorial reform of 1950, made after the Soviet model, all counties were abolished and regions and districts established.
The territory of the county then became part of Țara Făgărașului.
On 17 February 1968 the administrative and territorial divisions were returned to counties, but Făgăraş County was not re-established.
Administratively, Făgăraș County was divided into three districts (plăși):
- Plasa Arpașu de Jos, headquartered at Arpașu de Jos

- Plasa Șercaia, headquartered at Șercaia
