    Germanic Heroes

    I was thinking about great historic Germanic peoples and wondered....what are my fellow Skadi members foavorite Germanic Heroes? From Otto to Karolvs.....from Hitler to Oliver Kahn. I am looking for interesting Germanic heroes to research, so I pose the question, who is on the top of your list of favorite Germanic heroes? Whether ancient or current, mythological or historical, sports, war or science.

    Karel Van Egmont, Duke of Gelderland!


    Hertog van Gelre


    Gelre's hertog, Zupthens graaf
    Bevocht het huis van Habsburg
    Onversaagd trok hij ten strijd
    Voor Gelre's onafhankelijkheid
    Ommelanden, Groningen
    Het Oversticht, Oost-Friesland
    En het volk van Grutte Pier
    Onder Gelderse banier

    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre
    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre

    Dreiging van Bourgondië
    Gevaar voor Gelres grenzen
    Karel kwam in 't geweer
    Gelre stelde zich teweer
    Hertog vechtend voor het volk
    Van 't oosten en het noorden
    Met van Rossum aan zijn zij
    Voor een Nedersaksisch rijk

    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre
    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre

    Vrijheid voor Gelre, helder voor ogen
    Brandend en blakend, knieval gewroken
    Klauwen van Habsburg, altijd bestreden
    Strijdbaar gebleven tot aan zijn dood

    Vaandels, wuivend in de wind
    Westwaards de troepen
    Van Egmond voert Gelre aan
    De hertog neemt wraak

    Schuimend op de Zuiderzee
    En plunderend landinwaarts
    In het spoor der Zwarte Hoop
    Bloed dat op de aarde droop
    Heug u van Rossums tocht
    In 1528?
    Dreigend met een vlammenzee
    's-Gravenhage in zijn greep

    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre
    Voer Gelre aan, Karel van Egmond
    Geef het bevel, Hertog van Gelre
    ''Ginds de Waal, daar weer de IJssel, dan de Maas en ook de Rijn. Geeft ons recht om heel ons leven trots op Gelderland te zijn.''

    Prinz Eugen



    The battle was an amazing victory for Austria; at the cost of 500 men they had inflicted the loss of 30,000 men and captured the sultan's harem, 87 cannons, the royal treasure chest and the state seal of the Ottoman Empire. According to Prinz Eugen (1960, biography) by Alexander Lernet-Holenia, the startled Austrians even captured a train of camels. The main Ottoman army was scattered and the Austrians gained complete freedom of action in Bosnia, where Sarajevo was sacked.

    By the terms of the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699, the Austrians forced the sultan Mustafa II to make peace with the Emperor, and to cede Transylvania and the Ottoman eyalets of Buda, Eger, and Kanizsa, which were later transformed or integrated into Habsburg provinces known as the Principality of Transylvania, Kingdom of Hungary, Kingdom of Slavonia, and the Military Frontier.

    Friedrich Wilhelm August Heinrich Ferdinand von Steuben

    (born Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin von Steuben; September 17, 1730 – November 28, 1794), also referred to as the Baron von Steuben,[1] was a Prussian-born military officer who served as inspector general and Major General of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He is credited with being one of the fathers of the Continental Army in teaching them the essentials of military drills, tactics, and disciplines.[2] He wrote the Revolutionary War Drill Manual, the book that served as the standard United States drill manual until the War of 1812. He served as General George Washington's chief of staff in the final years of the war.

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    In my opinion the greatest germanic (and also worldwide) heroe is the former Austrian skier Hermann Maier:
