It emerged in 1918 as part of the Serb Croat state. It became Austro-Hungarian until 1102, when the Venetian influence was strong. It came under direct rule from Venice in 1402 until 1797. A Brief occupation during the Napoleonic period found it as part of the French province of Illyria. The mid 18th century found it again under the Austro-Hungarian house. In 1912 it sought affiliation with the Serb\Croatian elements. The Nazi occupation found it was ceded to Mussolini in 1941.
