Political and Territorial History . The city of Venice was established in 421. Part of the Western Roman Empire, then of the Ostrogoth Kingdom and Byzantine Empire. When the Lombards invaded Italy in 568 and took control of much of Italy, the islands in the lagoon of Venice where out of reach for them; Venice became a politically independent entity, outside of the Lombard Kingdom of Italy respectively (since 1005) the Holy Roman Empire.
Venice evolved as a republic lead by a duke (doge). Her strong fleet made Venice "the Queen of the Adriatic"; Venice played a dominant role in maritime trade in the Eastern Mediterranean. It acquired territory in Istria, Dalmatia, Crete, Cyprus, islands in the Aegean.
In the early 15th century Venice acquired territory in its economic hinterland, the Terraferma.
From the 16th to the 18th century, Venice was often allied with France, and also often at war with the Ottoman Empire, to which it lost Aegean Islands in 1566, Cyprus in 1573, Crete in 1645/1669.
In 1797 the Republic of Venice was partitioned by France (the Cisalpine Republic) and Austria. From 1815 to 1860/1866 the city of Venice and the Terraferma were part of the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia (to Austria); since 1861/1866 they are part of Italy.

Administrative Division . The Terraferma was divided into the Dogato, (Venetian) Friuli, Trevisano, Polesino, Padovano, Vicentino, Veronese, Bresciano, Bergamasco and Cremano. Overseas possessions included Venetian Istria, Dalmatia, the Ionian Islands, Candia (Crete), Aegean Islands, Cyprus and Morea (= the Peloponnese).
