'''Keserwan''' (Qadaa' Keserwèn) ([[Arabic language|Arabic]] '''قضاء كسروان''') is a district (''[[qadaa]]'') in the [[Mount Lebanon Governorate]] ({{lang-ar|'''محافظة جبل لبنان'''}}), [[Lebanon]], to the northeast of the Lebanon's capital [[Beirut]]. The capital is [[Jounieh]]. == Origin of the name == The name "Keserwan" (also spelled "Kesrouane" by [[francophones]] and "Kesrouan" by some anglophones) comes from the Arabic word "kesrah" (Arabic كسره) which means a little piece (as in a little piece of a crunchy or dried bread or a little piece of a broken rock) or the Arabic word "kasar" (Arabic كسر) which means to break. Other historical sources suggest the name was named in honor of the leader of the [[Maronites]] in "Kosra", who won decisive battles against the [[Umayyad Caliphate]] invasion of Mount Lebanon in the early 8th century. ==Cities, Towns, and Villages== *[[Adma]] *[[Ain Al Rihaneh]] *[[Aintoura]] *[[Ajaltoun]] *[[Ashqout]] *[[Aazra]] *[[Bkerké]] *[[Ballouneh]] *[[Batha, Lebanon|Batha]] *[[Becharry]] *[[Bzoummar]] *[[Chahtoul]] *[[Daraya,keserwan|Daraya]] *[[Daroun]] *[[Dlebta]] *[[Faitroun]] *[[Nammoura]] *[[Faraya]] *[[Ghazir]] *[[Ghebaleh]] *[[Ghineh]] *[[Ghosta]] *[[Harissa, Lebanon|Harissa]] *[[Hrajel]] *[[Jeita]] *[[Jounieh]] *[[Jouret Bedran]] *[[Jouret el Termos]] *[[Jwar El Hous]] *[[Kaslik]] *[[Kfardebian]] *[[Kfaryassine]] *[[Kleiat]] *[[Mayrouba]] *[[Rayfoun]] *[[Safra, Lebanon|Safra]] *[[Sehaileh]] *[[Tabarja]] *[[Yahchouch]] *[[Zouk Mikael]] *[[Zouk Mosbeh]] {{Districts of Lebanon}} {{coord missing|Lebanon}}
