PRINCIPALITY OF TRIENT
The Principality of Trient (now Trentino, Italy) was from 1027-1803 an independent state ruled by the Bishops of Trient. In 1803 the state was incorporated into Austria-Hungary. The arms were granted in 1339 to Bishop Nicholas by King Johann of Bohemia, and is identical to the old arms used by the Kings of Bohemia until King Wenzel I. The Kings of Bohemia acted as protectors for the bishops at the time.
