From the name of the Baltic priests "Krivis" and the main spiritual and military leader of the Kings Koreiva, (Kareiva), (Kreiva),(Kreva), the name of this region appeared - The Krivichs.

Archaeological research confirms that the ancient Krivichi were Balts.

The Balts lived: from the basins of the Visla and Nareva in the west, the Berezina, Sozh and the Southern Bug in the south to Lake Ilmen and the Tver region in the north. In the east, the territory of residence of the Balts was the modern Vitebsk and Mogilev regions of Belarus and the Pskov, Smolensk (Tushemlinskaya culture), Bryansk, Kursk, Orel regions of Russia (Kolochinskaya culture). Also historically recorded is the residence of the Western Baltic tribe Golyad in the upper reaches of the Oka, in the Kaluga, Oryol, Tula and Moscow regions (the culture of the Moskvoretsky settlements).

Later, on the basis of these Krivichi territories, the Principality of Polotsk was founded. Unable to withstand the onslaught from the east and south, part of the population moved to the north and to Samogitia. The descendants of Prince Juozas Koreiva, sovereign princes of Kreva and Kings of Ancient Boults and Krivichi, also moved to Samogitia.
