List of Székely settlements
Following is a list of Székely settlements. The list contains the municipalities belonging to the Székely Seats in the 19th century, before the administrative reform in Hungary. The Seats were the traditional self-governing territorial units of the Transylvanian Székelys during medieval times. (Saxons were also organised in Seats.) The Seats were not part of the traditional Hungarian county system, and their inhabitants enjoyed a higher level of freedom (especially until the 18th century) than those living in the counties.

Udvarhelyszék (Udvarhely Seat)Edit
- This list may not be complete because it only contains the settlements mentioned in Balázs Orbán: Székelyföld leírása (Description of Székely Land), 1868. The list also fails to cover those settlements that were originally part of the Székely Seats but gave up, or lost their freedom before the 19th century.
