Timeline of Slovene history

This is a timeline of key events in the history of Slovenia and the nations
that lived and live on Slovene ethnic territory, mostly Slovenes. 1

1300s BC

 NOTE a theory about connections between the Veneti and Proto-Slovenes is
 believed to be speculative. This page won't discuss much of it, but it is
 at least worth mentioning it.

    * Circa 1300 BC - The Veneti (Venedes) ('Venetkeni', 'Venetkini',
      'Venedi', 'Vinedi', 'Vendi', (Jordanes 'Venethi'), 'Sclavi',
      'Sclavini', (Jordanes 'Sclaveni'), 'Slovonici') (Greek Venedes, Homer
      shortened the name to 'Enetoi', Jordanes wrote 'Ainetoi'
      ("Laudable")) | (also Wenets, Veneds, Venets, Wenetes) (not to be
      confused with Venetians or Venicians), the Proto-Slavs
      (Proto-Slovenes, Slo-veneti), an Aryan folk from Sorbian (Lusatian
      (Lusation), Wendish) culture along the Amber's path conquer and
      settle region between the Baltic and Adriatic Sea.

      northern Turkey on the Black Sea, continued East across Persia and
      Afghanistan after the defeat of Troy reach Punjab across the Khyber
      mountain pass (1022 m). Homer talks about the Venets, and so do
      the Greeks, using the name Henetoi. Roman historians claim their
      leader was Antenor (Antenore), originated from Troy.
    * 1100 BC - The new combined nation, known until today by the name of
      Aryans or Hindi, was able to penetrate towards East to the river
      valley of the Ganges and conquered the whole area up to the
      Himalayas. A new vast country came into existence, which still today
      carries the name Hindustran (like Heneti - Veneti). India - actually
      Vindia - was born.
