The county of Armagnac (; Gascon Armanhac), situated between the Adour and Garonne rivers in the lower foothills of the Pyrenées, is a historic county of the Duchy of Gascony, established in 601 in Aquitaine (now France). It is a region in southwestern France that includes parts of the Departments of Gers, Landes, and Lot-et-Garonne.

The region is predominantly agricultural and is noted for its Armagnac brandy, the oldest French brandy.

Once an important county, it reached its greatest power and extent during the 14th and 15th centuries.
