    Saxony, Lower Saxony & Saxony-Anhalt

    I've a question about these three German states: which tribes dwell here? I've heard the saying that only the peoples of Lower Saxony are the "true Saxons", but the others aren't. How would a delimitation be described then?

    Not really an answer to your question, but I'd like to add that a big chunk of the Netherlands has largely been Saxon since right after the Saxons consolidated themselves as a supertribe.



    The map above shows where Low Saxon dialects are still spoken in the Netherlands. There is a Frisian substrate along the Northern coast. (However, the line between Frisians and Saxons has from the beginning been rather blurry.)

    Hmm, indeed, thank you. I'm aware the Saxon tribes transcend the moder borders.

    However, I'm still curious about my question, if someone could answer it.

    Because in Transylvania, Saxon has a different meaning from the one in Germany.
