Regestum

Emperor Louis the Pious deposes several marcher officials – including Baldric, the duke of Friuli – from their offices due to their military impotence. As a result of Baldric’s deposition, the March of Friuli – which included Istria – is divided into four counties governed by their respective counts.

Regestum

After having invaded and conquered Italy, King Otto I convokes a diet in Augsburg whereby he bestowed upon the defeated Berengar II and his son Adalbert the Kingdom of Italy, albeit somewhat reduced: the marches of Verona and Aquileia were ripped off from Italy and appended to the Duchy of Bavaria, governed by Otto's brother Henry. Since Istria formed part of the "March of Aquileia" (i. e. Friuli), this event marks the beginning of a new chapter of Istrian history.
