    It did indeed. And reasonable numbers of Scandinavians settled in what became Scotland. Places like Dublin, at one point, were almost wholly Scandinavian. But for whatever reason, their language disappeared while Gaelic soldiered on (although English has now largely killed off what remains of Gaelic save in certain specific areas).

    Is Russia ever been invaded? I know the parts of it were, but not the majority of its land.

    "Russia" in a strict sense not but Grand Duchy of Moscow was invaded and controlled by the Golden Horde (Mongolians).

    Yes, Mongols are the only people which I think they were close to rule all the current Russian (or Imperial Russian) realm.
