Carinthia coins online catalog with values


Emperor Otto II created the Duchy of Greater Carinthia in 976, uniting the territories of Carinthia, Styria, Slovenia, Friuli, Istria and Verona. The core of the duchy was Carinthia, so the whole duchy was usually called so.

In 1073-1122 the Styrian, Kraine and Istrian Marks were completely separated and the duchy consisted of an area roughly corresponding to the modern federal state of Carinthia.
Under Hermann Spanheim (1161-1181), Klagenfurt became the de facto capital of the state.
In 1248 the Dukes of Carinthia, in their struggle with Austria, annexed Craine.
In 1268 the last representative of the Spanheim dynasty, Ulrich III, died and bequeathed his possessions to the Czech king Přemysl Ottokar II.

In 1276, Přemysl Ottokar II was defeated in a struggle with Emperor Rudolf I and the Kingdom of Bohemia was divided. Carinthia was given to the counts of Tyrol.
In 1335 Carinthia was handed over to the Habsburgs and became part of the Austrian dominions.
By the partitions of 1396 and 1411 Carinthia was assigned to the Styrian line.
In 1452, the Carinthian Duke Frederick III became Holy Roman Emperor. In 1457 the duchy was reincorporated into the unified Austrian state.

Under Joseph II, all territories of the empire were united into 13 provinces. Carinthia was included in one of these provinces together with Styria and Craine, which meant the elimination of the self-government of the duchy.
