"Sclavonia, Croatia, Bosnia cum Dalmatiae, parte," Amsterdam, 1643, hand-colored engraving, map by Willem Blaeu
Blaeu's map of the course of the Danube River and its tributaries across the northwestern Balkans was based on a map by Gerard Mercator published in the early 1600s. The borders between the political divisions of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, and Dalmatia are shown. The three coats-of-arms along the top edge of the map represent the Venetian Republic, the Habsburg Monarchy, and the Ottoman Empire, and they reflect the power struggle that dominated this region.
