The Greek colony (Melaina Korkyra) was founded in the 6th century BC. The Romans took the island from the Illyrians and added it to their Illyricum province. In 10 AD, the province was split into Pannonia and Dalmatia (which also included Korcula).

In the 6th century AD, the island became part of the Byzantine Empire (330-1453 AD). Under the Venetian Republic (697-1797), Korcula was a primary supplier of timber for Venice's wooden walls and also a naval port. In 1797, the island was given to the Habsburg Empire (1526-1804). In 1815, the island was given to the Austrian Empire (1804-1867) and in 1867 became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918).
