Venetia is a name used mostly in a historical context for the area of north-eastern Italy formerly under the control of the city of Venice and corresponding approximately to the present-day Italian administrative regions of the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Under Austrian rule from 1797 to 1866, the territory was combined with its western neighbour in the kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia during the years 1815 - 1859.
