 Carinthia (duchy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carinthia (German: Kärnten, Slovenian: Koroška) was a duchy of the Holy Roman Empire until its dissolution in 1806, and a crownland of Austria-Hungary until it dissolved in 1918.
In the 7th century it was part of the Principality of Karantania, and was part of the empire of Charlemagne from 788 to 843, when it became part of the eastern Frankish kingdom of Louis the German.
From 889 to 927 the Mark of Carinthia was part of the duke of Bavaria's territories before passing to direct rule of the Holy Roman Empire.

Styria came under the supremacy of Charlemagne as a part of Karantania (Carinthia).
Large numbers of Germans, especially Bavarians, came into the country, settled in colonies in it, and made it Christian.
The work of conversion was carried on mainly from Salzburg; Bishop Virgilius of Salzburg (745-84), an Irishman, was largely instrumental in converting the country to Christianity, and gained for himself the name of "Apostle of Karantania".
