ARCH-DUCHY OF KRAKAU
The Arch-Duchy of Krakau (now Kraków Poland) became part of Austria-Hungary during the third Polish division in 1795. In 1814 the Duchy became an independent State, but in 1846 it was incorporated into Galicia and thus part of Austria-Hungary again. The title was created in 1806.
The arms show the arms of the city of Krakow on a shield with the Polish eagle.Literature:
