In 1809 Austria was compelled by the Treaty of Schönbrunn to cede to France the Duchy of Carinthia, the Duchy of Carniola, the County of Gorizia, Trieste, Austrian and Venetian Istria, part of Croatia, part of the Austrian Military Frontier (both west of the Sava) and formerly Venetian Dalmatia, including the formerly independent Republic of Ragusa. These territories were formed into the (French) Illyrian Provinces. In 1813 these territories were taken under Austrian military administration. In 1816, Carinthia, Carniola, Gorizia, Trieste and Istria were formed into the (Austrian) Kingdom of Illyria; Dalmatia was to form a separate Austrian crownland, while the asreas west of the Sava were reunited with Croatia and the Austrian Military Frontier.
