The first crusade meant politically the constitution of the Latin States of the East and the recovery for the Byzantine Empire of some territories, at the same time that it meant a turning point in the history of the relations between the societies of the Mediterranean area, marked by a period of expansion of the power of the western world and by the use of the religious fervor for the war. They also allowed for an increase in the prestige of the papacy and the resurgence, after the fall of the Roman Empire, of international trade and increased exchanges that favored the economic and cultural revitalization of the medieval world.
The origins of the crusades in general, especially the first crusade, come from the earliest events of the Middle Ages. The consolidation of the feudal system in Western Europe after the fall of the Carolingian Empire, combined with the relative stability of the European frontiers after the Christianization of the Vikings and Magyars, had meant the birth of a new class of alpha warriors (the feudal chivalry) who found themselves in continuous internal struggles, provoked by the structural violence inherent in the economic, social and political system itself.

Fridtjof Nansen made a name for himself, first and foremost, by crossing Greenland on skis and, later, in his attempt to reach the North Pole aboard the ship Fram. Today, however, he is remembered as much more than a polar explorer. Nansen was a renowned scientist, statesman and humanist. He tried to end the union between Norway and Sweden in 1905, using his fame as a political activist. After World War I, he worked tirelessly to help improve the situation of refugees, an effort for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922.

The current Slovenia was formed on June 25, 1991 when it became independent from Yugoslavia, after a relatively short armed conflict called the Ten Days War (which was the first war of the dissolution of Yugoslavia), in which it opposed the army of the former Yugoslav federation. At that time it was already the most developed country of that federation.
In 2004 it joined the European Union, Slovenia joined the euro on January 1, 2007 and the Schengen area in 2004. It had already joined the Council of Europe in 1993 and has been a member of the OECD since July 2010.
