The Banatian Military Frontier or Banat Krajina was a district of the Habsburg Monarchy's Military Frontier located in the Banat region. Today, territory of former Banatian Military Frontier is split between Serbia and Romania.
The Banat Krajina was divided into Serb (Illyrian), German (Volksdeutsche or Danube Swabians or Shwoveh) and Romanian (Vlach) sections. In 1849, this part of the Military Frontier bordered the Principality of Serbia to the south, Voivodship of Serbia and Tamiš Banat to the north, Transylvania and Wallachia to the east, and the Slavonian Military Frontier to the west. The Banat Krajina also included the south-eastern part of Bačka region, known as Šajkaška.
The military province of Habsburg Empire known as the Banat of Temeswar was created in 1718. In 1751, Maria Theresa introduced a civil administration for the northern part of the province. The southern part remained under military administration and was organized as the Banatian Military Frontier or Banat Krajina. It remained a part of the Habsburg Military Frontier until it was abolished in 1871.
