The West Slavs are Slavic people speaking West Slavic languages. These are the current Slovaks, Czechs, Kashubians, Poles and Sorbs. Historicly, the first independent West Slavic states originate beginning in the 7th century, with the Empire of Samo, the Principality of Moravia, the Principality of Nitra and Great Moravia. The central Polish tribe of the Polans created their own state in the 10th century under the Polish duke Mieszko I. For many centuries Poland has had close ties with its western neighbors, with the Polish ruler Bolesław I the Brave declared by Holy Roman Emperor Otto III as Brother and Partner in the Empire.
