See also the Roman province of Raetia (pleiades:981547).

The Raeti who inhabited this region were a confederation of Alpine tribes and they inhabited the central area of Switzerland and the Tyrol from ca. 500 B.C. There are some claims that the Raeti were in some way descended from the Etruscans, but this claim is difficult to substantiate.
