The Rus' were a group of Varangians—diverse groups of Norsemen. According to the Primary Chronicle of Rus', compiled in about 1113 AD, the Rus' had relocated from the Baltic region, first to northeastern Europe, creating an early polity that finally came under the leadership of Rurik. Later, Rurik's relative Oleg captured Kiev, founding Kievan Rus'. The descendants of Rurik were the ruling dynasty of Rus', and of principalities created in the area formerly occupied by Kievan Rus', Galicia-Volhynia, Chernigov, Vladimir-Suzdal, Grand Duchy of Moscow, and the founders of the Tsardom of Russia.
