Slovene Lands

Slovene Lands or Slovenian Lands (Slovene: Slovenske dežele or shortly Slovensko) is the historical denomination for the territories in Central and Southern Europe where people primarily spoke Slovene. The Slovene Lands were part of the Illyrian provinces, the Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary (in Cisleithania). They encompassed Carniola, southern part of Carinthia, southern part of Styria, Istria, Gorizia and Gradisca, Trieste, and Prekmurje. Their territory more or less corresponds to modern Slovenia and the adjacent territories in Italy, Hungary, and Croatia, where autochthonous Slovene minorities live. They were never homogeneously ethnically Slovene.
