From cca. 796 to 828/830, "Lower Pannonia", as a territory under Frankish influence, referred to present-day northern Croatia, i.e. to Pannonia to the south of the Drava (and to the east of Carantania and Krain). From 828/830 to (at least) cca. 900, "Lower Pannonia" referred to present-day western Hungary and northern Croatia except for the territory around Neusiedler See, i.e. to Pannonia to the south of the Rába River (and to the east of Carantania and Krain).
