In ancient times, Trento was a Gallic settlement. In the fourth century A.D., it became a bishopric. The city (known as Triden-tum in Latin and as Trient in German) was the seat of an ecclesiastical principality from 1027—when the bishop of Trento acquired the title of prince—until 1803. In the Peasant War of 1524–26, uprisings in the Trento region continued through 1526. The city was the site of the 16th-century Council of Trent.

Trento belonged to Austria in the 19th century, with an interval from 1810 to 1814 when, as part of the Italian kingdom, it was under French rule. In 1919, the Treaty of St. Germain gave Trento to Italy.

Trento further reminds us that following theApollo fire, NASA declared the astronauts had died instantly, when in fact their bodies were found pressed up against the hatch and "hundreds of people heard the screams of agony over an open circuit that was preserved on tape." Only after extensive prodding did NASA admit that the Challenger crew had not perished instantly either, as initially claimed, but survived the explosion and probably lived until their cabin hit the ocean.
