As dark age was a good period for slave hunting carlemagne did not allow to sell christians as slaves. Therefore stavic states tryed to adapt christianity as early as possible. So did; great Moravia, Bohemia, Croatia & a bit later Poland too. So the old alliances did break & a new christian front made by Germans & Slaves against the pagan tribes. For the short time of its existence i would add great Moravia with its home topograhpy; forest: 2 javelin cavalry(Gen) or as Avar stile elite cavalry, 8 raiders, fierce fighting axemen, 4 bow levy .
The Slavic tribes with access to the sea could be more powefull with a few raiders without a Viking restriction of: 804 - 1056 AD...
...Hanta Yo!..
