Banate of Lugos and Karánsebes (Hungarian: Karánsebesi-Lugosi bánság, Romanian: Banatul de Lugoj-Caransebeș, Serbian: Лугошка и карансебешка бановина / Lugoška i karansebeška banovina) was an administrative territorial entity of the vassal Ottoman Principality of Transylvania in the 16th century. It was located in the south-eastern part of the region of Banat.

History

The Banate of Lugos and Karánsebes was formed gradually between 1526–1536, after the battle of Mohács, when the Banate of Severin was divided. Its eastern side, from Orsova (present-day Orșova), came under the jurisdiction of the Wallachian ruler. In the western part, it was formed this new political and military border entity.

In 1658, the new prince of Transylvania, Ákos (Acațiu) Barcsay, ceded the region to the Ottoman Empire.
