West Slavs in 9th/10th century

The West Slavs are Slavic peoples speaking West Slavic languages. Czechs, Kashubians, Poles, Slovaks, and Sorbs are the ethnic groups that originated from the original Western Slavic tribes. Of these, the Kashubians were assimilated by the Poles, while the Sorbs were integrated within German society; the others retained their cultural identity to this very day. The societies of the West Slavs developed along the lines of other western European nations by coming into political affiliation with the Holy Roman Empire.[1] Image File history File links Slavic_europe. ...

History

The first Slavic states known from written sources inhabited by the group southern of West Slavs were the Empire of Samo 623 - 658 and Great Moravia (833 - 907). The Sorbs and some of the other West Slavs came under direct Holy Roman Empire domination and had been strongly assimilated by Germans at the end of 19th century. The (eastern) Poles created their own state in the 10th century, which in the 20th century assimilated the Kashubians. For many centuries Poland has close ties with its western neighbours, with the Polish ruler Bolesław I the Brave declared by Holy Roman Emperor Otto III as "Frater et Cooperator Imperii" ("Brother and Partner in the Empire")[2]. The Czechs created their own state, Bohemia, in the 10th century and became part of the Holy Roman Empire as well, but Bohemia enjoyed a special status within that empire. The Slovaks gradually came under Hungarian domination in the 10th - 11th century.

Finally, several new theories of the origin of Slavs were published and found large numbers of followers in the 1990s and 2000s, fueled by the rise of nationalism in Ukraine and Russia.
Some even claim that Slavs existed as an entity as early as the 7th to 5th millennium BC and were the ancestors of Sumerians.
Slavs appeared in early histories as Venedes or Wends, but their connection to the Veneds mentioned by Tacitus, Ptolemy and Pliny, remains uncertain, and the similarity of the two names may have come about accidentally.
