Roth is a district in Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by the districts of Nürnberger Land, Neumarkt, Eichstätt, Weißenburg-Gunzenhausen, Ansbach and Fürth, and the cities of Schwabach and Nürnberg.
In medieval times the region was ruled by many lords. Brandenburg-Ansbach and Nürnberg owned possessions in this territory, and other parts were property of clerical states. When these clerical states were dissolved in 1803, the district fell to Bavaria.
The district was established in 1972 by merging the former districts of Roth, Schwabach and Hilpoltstein.
