Other uses[edit]

The article claimed: Some claim Sorbs share ancestry with Serbs. According to one of the hypotheses, in the 5th century, after leaving their proto-Slavonic homeland, common ancestors of all Serbs and Sorbs divided into two groups. One of the groups (the ancestors of the Serbs), known as the White Serbs, reached the Balkans through the Carpathian Mountains under the leadership of the Unknown Archont, whilst the others settled in the middle part of the Elbe and become 'Sorbs'. The story depicted in Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitos' De Administrando Imperio tells that a brother of the Archont had remained in what is today Lusatia with a part of the Serb people.

One part of this is not a use different to the one covered in the articles, because it is already covered in the article. The rest is unreferenced, likely to be either original research or a hoax. See the relevant articles. And it is not relevant for the subject of Wends anyway.

Some other items on the list are also covered in the article. I will delete them. -- Zz (talk) 16:28, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

End of this occultism[edit]

Slavs derived from term Sloveni (as they called themselves on current territories of Slovakia, Slovenia, Austria, parts of Hungary, Italy). The name appeared because of 1 reason; the "eastern" tribes of Slavs which were previously called Skolotoi (Scynthians) by Herodotus, started to migrate into territories of "western" Slavs - Wends. After their "mixing" since 4th century, they started to call their tribal unions Sloveni. Byzantium historians because of that described their territory as "Sklavinia" or also Stlavinia; which means Skolotoi+Veni (Veneti); SklaVeni. A mixture of 2 different Slavic tribes. (the third one represented Antes which lived in the current territories of Bulgaria, Danube, Dnieper, Dniester: source: Procopius )

King Samo (described as Rex(king) of Veneti) for example was a western Slavic - Venetic (and not eastern Slavic; Scynthian) king (in the Fredegarii Chronicon).
