Geography and administration
Civic history

From the mid-16th century until 1974, Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog was governed by the then administrative county of Denbighshire, which was divided into various rural districts. From 1895 to 1935, Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog was in the Llansillin Rural District, which merged in 1935 with Chirk Rural District to form the Ceiriog Rural District.

Clwyd and Glyndŵr District were dissolved in 1996, and Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog became a part of the new unitary authority of Wrexham County Borough, in which it remains to the present day.
