The Vikings tended only to settle where they had taken over the government of a place so if someone needs to show that Russian had Scandinavian rulers at some point. Otherwise they probably just traded or raided. [/quote]
The name Russia comes from the word ''Rus''.
Rus comes from the Finnish word Ruotsi meaning Sweden.
Ruotsi comes from Old Norse Róthr, meaning ''rowing''.
FACT : The ancient Russian dynasty, the Romanovs, were literally descendents of the Varangians, i.e. the Eastern Vikings. They created a large number of settlements and forts that created the future Russian State.
FACT : Normandy (France), England, Sicily, Prussia (Germany) were all settled and conquered by Vikings. The royal bloodlines all have the Viking remains in them.
FACT : Barack Obama is probably descended from Vikings through his mother's genealogy.
