The Kingdom of Illyria was created in 1816 by Emperor Franz I from the Austrian possessions along the coast of the Adriatic Sea, together with parts of present Italy, Croatia, Austria and Slovenia.

The name and arms were derived from the Roman province of Illyria. The galley appeared on Roman coins for the area. Historically Illyria was what is now Albania, and the classical Illyria never was part of the Kingdom created in 1816.
