Korjenić-Neorić Armorial

The Korjenić-Neorić Armorial or Illyrian Armorial is a 1595 copy of the lost original of the Ohmućević Armorial commissioned by Petar Ohmućević, a Spanish admiral of Ragusan origin, at some point between 1584 and 1594.
It is an example of the "Interconfessional" form of Illyrism, which formed the ideological basis for the later rise of nationalism in the South-Eastern Europe.
The armorial combines historical (late medieval) with fictional coats of arms to construct the notion of an "Illyrian Empire".
