    Name one Germanic person, famous or otherwise, whom you really admire and give a reason.

    Surely somebody on here must have a Germanic idol.

    Personally I admire Nietzsche because he was so much above (intellectually) everyone else around him. I think we should all get acquainted with his ubermensch theory.

    I also admire my grandfather Andreas, he was a real man of integrity, in every sense of the phrase.

    I admire Goethe, Bach, Beethoven, all the Strausses, Handel, Schiller, Nietsche and Ludwig II and also my father Martin and my grandfather Max--they were both hardworking, honest, Christian Germans.

    Since music is my passion, I will have to say Bach is my favorite Germanic overall, but I also have great admiration for Beethoven, Mozart, Wagner, Schubert, and even some of the older German composers like the baroque Dietrich Buxtehude or the medieval Oswald von Wolkenstein, Walter von der Volgelweide, and Hildegard von Bingen.

    Outside of this concise realm there are too many to name.

    Well all of the people I admire or have admired have been Germanic, but if I had to pick one I would say Herman aka Arminius. He stood up and led the the Germanic people against the largest force in the world at its time. He saved the Germanic people from being romanticized and fought for their freedom. IMO he has to be the most heroic of all Germanics.


    Hail Herman

    Hermann (Arminius), saviour of Germania , on 9 September in the year 9 during the Teutoburg Battle. Without him no one today would even have botherd with ideas like "Germanic" etc.

    It's 3 Friedrichs for me:

    Friedrich II. "der Große" of Prussia, being pretty much the archetype of a leader. A good general, just and charismatic king and great thinker.

    Friedrich III., King of Prussia and Emperor of Germany. His person melds prussian self-discipline and virtue with an open-minded and progresive spirit. That being said, he is something like the ideal human to me. He was a great man and his early death was a true tragedy. When I think of all that's good about Germany, first I think of Friedrich.

    Friedrich Nietzsche, the grand philosopher. Few, if any, ever matched his genius in regards of understanding the world. This man has shaped me, his writings influence me every day.

    Well, I guess I'll have to name my firstborn son Friedrich
