The ancestors of the Slovaks are the Slavs, a migrating people who arrived in the territory of present-day Slovakia in the 5th and 6th centuries. During the 9th century, Slavic ancestors of the Slovaks established a political entity called the Great Moravia. After the 10th century, the territory of today's Slovakia was integrated into the Kingdom of Hungary, which later became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
