How Many Strongholds are in a Minecraft World?

In the early days Minecraft, there was only three Strongholds per World. Many updates have occurred since then to alter the world generation. Strongholds have been a part of many of these changes. Players are now curious about how many there actually are. It all depends on what version of Minecraft you are using.

Bedrock Edition

The number of Strongholds available in Bedrock Edition is limited only by the size of the world. They can also generate together, as they don’t have a set distance or spawn point. This means that there is no limit to the number of Strongholds you can have in your world.
