    How would you quantify this?

    I'd like to know about the 3% too. The Roman Empire did reach quite far into southern Germany, so certain degree of mixture is probable. Where did you get this figure, do you have a link or something?

    He was being sarcastic, I suppose.


    We don't really have any census records on the Roman (rather Gallo-Roman with Germanic influences) population in Southern Germany so we can't give an answer in exact percentages.
    We do know though that the southwest at least was relatively sparsely settled.

    However, it was in any case minor because most of them moved back to the bordering Roman provinces in Gaul and Raetia around late third(southwest) and mid fifth century(southeast) in a planned, gradual retreat to the Rhine and the Danube. Many of the few remaining, especially the residents of the isolated Villa rustica were slain by the eventually invading Germanics, which is known through archaeological finds.

    A few Roman towns (for example Augusta Vindelicorum/Augsburg) survived undestroyed until later times.

    Simple...



    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Remember that only in the beginning of the Roman Empire were the troops really Latin. Afterwards, as they moved northwards, the vast majority became Celto-Germanic. If anything, souther Germans are probably darker due to more Celtic blood not Latin. And I think the 3% figure isn't too far off.

    Yes. Romans were very multikulti. Hermann for example was a Roman nobleman and soldier. But he was ethnically German.

    Not very. Southern Germany was influenced by them but the borders of the empire were mainly Germanic populated anyway.
