The territory of Krain (Krajina, now in Slovenia and Croatia) was gradually acquired by the Habsburg dynasty in the 13th and 14th centuries. In 1364 it was first mentioned as a Duchy. When the arms were devised is not known, but in 1463 the arms were officially granted and slightly changed to the above arms. The composition thus dates from prior to 1463.
