Dauphin County is a county in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census, the population was 268,100. The county seat and the County's largest city is Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's state/commonwealth capital and tenth largest city. Also located within the county is Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station, site of the 1979 nuclear core meltdown.

Dauphin County was created/"erected" on March 4, 1785, from part of Lancaster County and was named after Louis-Joseph, Dauphin of France the first son of Louis XVI. Louis-Joseph's title of "Dauphin" signified that he was the heir apparent to the throne of the Kingdom of France, (similar to the British "Prince of Wales" (currently Prince Charles) for the Monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland). Dauphin County is included in the Harrisburg–Carlisle Metropolitan Statistical Area.
