Chapter Summary

Carniola spread to its largest area in the first half of the 16th century. Besides Carniola proper, which consisted of Upper Carniola, the Ljubljana Basin, Inner Carniola, and part of Lower Carniola, it included the "adjoined lordships" of the county in the March and Metlika, the Karst, and Istria. The rise of the counts of Gorizia in this period is further marked by the marriage of Meinhard III to the daughter of the last count of Tyrol, Albert III, which had a decisive impact on the further development of the house of Gorizia and finally, in 1271, led to the first partition of the dominion and house of Gorizia. The seigneuries had been largely divested from the Church of Aquileia by the ministerials of the counts of Gorizia, to whom the patriarch had granted them in fief.
