ADDA

Department in the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, consisting of the Val Tellina, through which the River Adda flows.   The Val Tellina had belonged to the Grisons until 1797, when it was added to the Cisalpine Republic.   It did not return to Switzerland after the fall of Napoleon but was transferred to the Austrian Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia.
