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.

White Croat conection makes more sence to me to , but I wouldnt exclude some previous Sarmatian settlement . Here is something about White Croats architecture:

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?
