The office of Lord Lieutenant of Gwent was created on 1 April 1974 as the Monarch's representative covering the newly formed administrative county of Gwent. By virtue of S.I 1973/1754, the existing Lord Lieutenant of Monmouthshire became the first Lord Lieutenant of Gwent.

Following the abolition of Gwent in 1996 by the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994, the area was redefined as a preserved county. This was subsequently modified to its present area by S.I 2003/974.
