Note: Ancient Roman province including most of Tirol and Vorarlberg in Austria, Graubünden in Switzerland, and parts of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The native inhabitants were probably of mixed Illyrian and Celtic stock. The area was conquered by Rome in 15 BCE; it was important as a point of communications between parts of the empire. As a frontier province, its boundaries shifted; by 450 only the Alpine regions were controlled by Rome.
