Well, I had a very good history teacher - she was very excentric, but had a really great gift of telling about history, especially about things that weren`t mentioned in the schoolbooks. And as remember actually the whole lessons were about that, what hasn`t been mentioned in the schoolbooks, while that what was the actual programe we had to memorize from our books at home. But everything was made so interesting that I still remember many of the things we had to learn in liceum.
Did you know, that the original people that settled Poland, before it was Poland, came from region that was called Persia, currently Iran/Iraq, etc?
Actually the Slavic people didn`t came to Europe from anywhere. Our ancestors originated in Central Europe from a mix of the people who migrated to Europe from Asia (Persia, the Kaukasus ect), like the Sarmatians as well as people who were living in Europe, like the Veneds, who in 150 BC had left the nordern coas of the Adriatic Sea and settled in an area between today`s Poland and Germany.. as well as all of the rest of the inhabitants of Europe, who the Slavs had assimilated (like the people who were living in todays Poland since thousands of years BCE and those who migrated and are still migrating here.
i just wonder if whose tribes were all slavic ore some were germanic/anglo-saxon/norman for example.have they lived there for ages or they came and settled in poland short time before 966.
I belive that even some of those tribes were Celtic.. and even some Romans were living here (which has been discovered only a couple of years ago), but those were only small groups and before Poland was colonized by the Slavs there weren`t many people living here. I belive the largest of them were the Vandals (who were living in Małopolska and Silesia, which were their homeland) and the Goths. Somewhere between the VII and VIII century all of the major tribes that formed Poland were Slavic.
but if you know hungarians speak the language which is complitely different to any of european languages.i read somwhere that they are from india(
Not quite. The Hungarians are in the cusins of the Estonians and the Finns - they all have a similar language. The ancestors of the Hungarians, Finns and Estonians are the same. They originated in the area between Europe and Asia in the Ural and are related to the Turks.
i wouldn't be so sure.as i remember from history poland was divided between different tribes so our country did not not exist
Mieszko was only the last leader who had only ended the unification of the tribes. When he had begun his rule he already ruled over c.a. 2000 settelments and had an army - but, beside legends there are no records how he came to this. This whole unification had probably begun some 2 or 3 generations before him - during the times of the beginning of the Piast dynasty - somewhere shortly after legend about Popiel and the mice ended (which probably, as all legends, has some truth in it) - which would be probably somewhere around the year 800.
