The Baltic states have seen many masters, having been conquered by neighboring lands many times, but the Baltic ethnic group is Indo-European from an ethno-linguistic point of view. For example, the Balts, as they may be called in English, are “Baltai” in Lithuanian and “Balti” in Latvian. “Baltic” first referred to the sea of that name, and Balcia was supposedly an island therein. Many small ethnic groups in the area, including those of Baltic origin, eventually merged into the larger groups, including the Prussians, and those who are today considered hailing from the Baltic states: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
