Fri·u·li (frēʹə-lē', frē-o͞oʹlē)
A historical region and former duchy of Italy in present-day northeast Italy and Slovenia. Occupied by the Romans in the second century B.C., it became a Lombard duchy in the sixth century A.D. and was conquered by various peoples and states before being ceded to Italy in 1866 (the western part) and 1919 (the eastern part). Eastern Friuli was awarded to Yugoslavia by treaty in 1947.
