    Are the modern Poles related to the Sarmatians?

    The Polish Nobility believe(d) that they were descendants of the ancient Sarmantians that were closely related to the Medes from West Asia. There is 9% of I2 in Poland. My question sounds: how true is this???

    I believe there is posibility it is true . For White Croats in Krakow aeria I believe they are Sarmatians . Vandals who use to live in Poland could also be Sarmatians . And there could be even more Sarmatians that settled Poland during they move to west .
    There is also legend about Sarmatian origin of Lithuanian nobility , and Lithuania and Poland use to be in same state in Midle Ages . There is 6% of I2a in Lithuania and only 1% in Latvia , and they are neighboring states and they are both Balts . This diference is suprising and could give some weight to claims of Sarmatian origins .

    Thank you very much. White Croats connection makes more sense than the whole Sarmatian myth to me.

    I'm pretty sure that these so called Sarmatians were more (proto-)Slavic than Iranic. How sure are we that those folks spoke an Iranic language?
