      Perhaps "in western Slovakia and in the central Slovak counties of Hont, Gemer..." to make it clear that the listed counties were not in western Slovakia. Also, they should have said Hont County, etc., not regions. They were counties -- self-governing bodies politic with strictly defined county lines, not vague "regions." _Counties_ is also the standard English historical reference to those entities in the Kingdom of Hungary (z~upa, stolica in Slovak; comitatus in Latin -- comes is a noble title, "a count" --> county).
