Hello,
Can anyone tell me if the Baltic Sea was known under another word in the 12th century? Anything like варшавское море? Can’t find that information online. If so until when was it known like that?
Thank you!

    La mer Baltique était connue sous le nom de "Варяжское море" jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle en Russie.
    L'adectif "варяжское" dérive du nom "варяги" qui est "les varègues" en français.
