ILLYRIAN PROVINCES (Austria; Croatia; Slovenia; Italy)

Division of Napoleon’s French Empire, along the coast of Dalmatia. The region was acquired by Napoleon from Austria at the Treaty of Schönbrunn in 1809. It was ruled by Marshal Marmont, who introduced the Code Napoléon as the area’s legal system. This experience in political unity sowed seeds of nationalism among the Slavs that were to develop in the 1830s and 1840s. The Illyrian Provinces were ceded to Austria in 1814.
