Best Answer

Russia had been populated for many years prior to its "discovery". Vikings from the north used to travel to the area we presently call Russia for trade. Eventually, a Viking Lord called settled down and founded Novgorod in about 862 AD. This is generally considered to be the birth of the Russian State and the beginning of the Dynasty which ended in 1610 (when the Romanov Dynasty was established).
