In the 16th and 17th century there was a decline, caused by the turmoil and wars in central Europe, to be finally included under Austria in 1777. During the Napoleonic wars Trentino was united to Tyrol and was for a time under Bayern, then with the Congress of Vienna was returned to Austria. Only after the First World War the region, at the time consisting of only one province, Trento, was finally united to Italy. Later on the Province of Bolzano was also established.
