Early history[eedit | eedit soorce]

Efter the dissolution o the Wastren Roman Empire, the aurie o the province o Trieste wis ruled bi the Ostrogoths, Eastren Romans (Byzantines), Lombards an bi the Franks. Wi the advent o the Habsburgs (13t century) the territory wis dividit atween the lairds o Duino, Trieste, San Dorligo della Valle an Muggia. Durin the reign o Maria Theresa o Austrick an, subsequently, Joseph II, the maritime trades wur increased wi institution o the free port.

In 1809, the aurie wis cedit tae Fraunce efter the defeat o Austrick in that year. Efter the French definitive defeat, the communes o Duino, Nabrežina, Sgonico an Monrupino, which uised tae be pairt o Carniola, wur annexed tae that o Gorizia an Gradisca, while Trieste became a direct ceety o the Austrian Empire. San Dorligo della Valle an Muggia became pairt o Istrie.

Warld War I left the territory o the province amaist untouched, awtho fierce battles wur focht juist on its north-wastmaist edges.

The whole aurie wis occupeed bi Italy in November 1918, in the eftermath o Austrick-Hungary's defeat in Warld War I. It wis offeecially annexed tae Italy wi the Treaty o Rapallo (1920), which assigned aw o the fomer Austrian Littoral tae Italy an aw.
