 Illyrian provinces - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Illyrian Provinces (French Provinces illyriennes) were formed in 1809 when Austria ceded with the Treaty of Schoenbrunn its lands Carinthia, Carniola, Croatia southwest of the river Sava, Gorizia and Trieste to France after the defeat at the Battle of Wagram.
The provinces initially consisted of seven provinces: Carinthia (capital Lienz), Istria (Trieste), Carniola (Villach), Civil Croatia (Karlovac), Military Croatia (Senj), Dalmatia (Zadar) and the Dubrovnik and Kotor province (Dubrovnik).
Proclamations were published in the provinces' official journal, Télégraphe officiel, simultaneously in French, German and "Slavonian"; this elevation of a Slavic language to an official language had a great impact on the development of the modern Slovenian language.
