Europe in the late Middle Ages

Europe in the late Middle Ages advertises the modern times. North and eastern nationalities are not yet constituted, as in the West; but the distribution of peoples corresponds, in general terms, to the future states. Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the birthplace of the ancient Normans , were already outlined, as well as Poland and Hungary. The Slav Russia may still be considered as a feudal Asian state. Constantinople emerges as a reef hit by the barbaric wave, which spreads throughout the Balkan Peninsula over the Greeks, Serbs, Bulgarians and Romanians .
