    The House of Vis­conti had ruled Milan since 1277, in which year Ot­tone Vis­conti de­feated Napoleone della Torre. The Duchy of Milan (Duca­tus Mediolani) as a state of the Holy Roman Em­pire was cre­ated on 1 May 1395, when Gian Galeazzo Vis­conti, lord of Milan, pur­chased a diploma for 100,000 Florins from King Wences­laus. It was this diploma that in­stalled Vis­conti as Duke of Milan and Count of Pavia. At its foun­da­tion the duke's do­min­ions in­cluded 26 towns and spanned from the hills of Mont­fer­rat to the La­goons of Venice,[dubious – discuss] and in­cluded all the for­mer towns of the Lom­bard League.Milan thus be­came one of the five major states of the Ital­ian penin­sula in the 15th cen­tury. When the last Vis­conti Duke, Fil­ippo Maria, died in 1447 with­out a male heir, the Mi­lanese de­clared the so-called Am­brosian Re­pub­lic, which soon faced re­volts and at­tacks from its neighbors. In 1450 mer­ce­nary cap­tain Francesco Sforza, hav­ing pre­vi­ously mar­ried...

    In 1498, the Duke of Or­leans be­came King of France as Louis XII, and im­me­di­ately sought to make good his fa­ther's claim to Milan. He in­vaded in 1499 and soon ousted Lodovico Sforza. The French ruled the duchy until 1512, when they were ousted by the Swiss, who put Lodovico's son Mas­si­m­il­iano on the throne. Mas­si­m­il­iano's reign did not last very long. The French, now under Fran­cis I, in­vaded the area in 1515 and re­asserted their con­trol at the Bat­tle of Marig­nano. The French took Mas­si­m­il­iano as their pris­oner. The French were again dri­ven out in 1521, this time by the Aus­tri­ans, who in­stalled Mas­si­m­il­iano's younger brother, Francesco II Sforza. Fol­low­ing the French de­feat at Pavia in 1525, which left the Span­ish im­pe­r­ial forces of Charles V dom­i­nant in Italy, Francesco joined the League of Co­gnac against the em­peror along with Venice, Flo­rence the Pope, and the French. This re­sulted quickly in his own ex­pul­sion from Milan by im­pe­r­i...

    The em­peror Charles I of Spain (Charles V, Holy Roman Em­peror) held the duchy through­out, even­tu­ally in­vest­ing it on his son Philip II. The pos­ses­sion of the duchy by Spain was fi­nally rec­og­nized by the French in the Treaty of Cateau-Cambrésisin 1559. The Duchy of Milan re­mained in Span­ish hands until the War of the Span­ish Suc­ces­sion (1701-1714), when the Aus­tri­ans in­vaded it (1701). The Treaty of Baden, which ended the war in 1714, ceded Milan to Aus­tria.

    The duchy re­mained in Aus­trian hands until it was over­run by the French army of Napoleon Bona­parte in 1796. The duchy was ceded by Aus­tria in the Treaty of Campo Formio in 1797, and formed the cen­tral part of the new Cisalpine Re­pub­lic. After the de­feat of Napoleon, based on the de­ci­sions of the Con­gress of Vi­enna on 9 June 1815, the Duchy of Milan was not re­stored. The Duchy in­stead be­came part of the King­dom of Lom­bardy–Vene­tia, a con­stituent of the Aus­trian Em­pire and with the Em­peror of Aus­tria as its king. This king­dom ceased to exist when the re­main­ing por­tion of it was an­nexed to the King­dom of Italyin 1866.
