Abstract

Two large independent states had emerged in geographical Eastern Europe by the middle of the 9th century — Bulgaria (also known as the First Bulgarian Empire) and Great Moravia (or the Great Moravian Empire). Both were under increasing political and cultural pressures from two powerful states seeking to expand their authority in the region — the Byzantine Empire (or East Roman Empire) and the Kingdom of the Franks (or the Holy Roman Empire). The earliest independent East European state was Bulgaria.
