However, because of you guys sharing what you know with the rest of us, my knowledge of such is increasing exponentially, so thanks.
No problem here, Dan. I just want to keep it close to the truth and educational, even if it looks like nitpicking on my part.

The Varangians is another term for Vikings, this is how they were called by the Byzantines and the Russians. As for the origins of the very word Rus, it's still the subject of debate. Whether there was a Viking tribe with such name and which Rurik came from, or a Russian tribe, or there was such river is still unclear.

I tried again and this time I came up with a picture that I'm sure depicts a couple of real Varangian Rus warriors.
Well, you've almost guessed it, but they must be Normans then

Whatever they say about Wiki, it's a fairly reliable tool when you look for some general information on general and not very specific subjects, or pictures of certain people or things, so I would encourage you to use it here.
