Prior to the creation of the modern state of Ukraine (1991), Lviv had been part of numerous states and empires, including, under the name Lwów, Poland and later the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (14th century); under the name Lemberg, the Austrian and later Austro-Hungarian Empires (18th century); the short-lived West Ukrainian People's Republic after World War I (1918); Poland again (ca. 1920-ca. 1944); and the Soviet Union (1944-1991). In addition, both the Swedes and the Ottoman Turks made unsuccessful attempts to conquer the city)
