KINGDOM OF SLAVONIA
The Kingdom of Slavonia (now part of Croatia) was a title created and used by the Hungarian Kings in the 13th century. The area at the time was a Hungarian possession, which was later heavily disputed. In the 18th century the territory became again part of Austria-Hungary.
The oldest use of arms for Slavonia dates from 12th century coins, issued by King Emerich. The coins showed a marten between two stars. In 1496 King Wladislaw II created the above arms. A marten between the rivers Drava and Sava.
