  • Slovenes look back to Carantania (independent or semi-autonomous from the late 7th to about the 10th century) as an almost mythic land. This, they say, was the last time the Slovene nation ruled itself until Slovenia gained independence in 1991. In a kind of political nationalist romanticism, they often speak of the 1000-year yoke under the Germans (Austrians).
