Khiva is a small city which according to archaeological data was established in the beginning of the Christian era.

The town certainly existed by the 8th Century, as a minor fort and trading post on a Silk Road branch to the Caspian Sea and the Volga River. In the early 16th Century, Khiva was made capital of the Timurid Empire, becoming a busy slave market and pivot of the khanate for the next three centuries until Russia wrested Uzbekistan from Timurid grasp in the 19th century.
