In ancient times, Couronians inhabited territories in the north-west of Lithuania (the surroundings of modern Klaipėda and Palanga) and west of Kurzeme (Courland) (up to the mouth of the River Venta in the Baltic Sea). Though Couronians are considered to be mighty warriors and seafarers, they were also farmers and stockbreeders to care for their living during peacetime.
