    What Was Your Favourite Event Throughout Germanic History?

    I think one of my favourite would be the Viking expedition as they were the strength and blood that would lead the paths for Germanic life

    The Vikings destroyed a lot of early English history stored in monastic libraries during raids, alongside enslaving, extorting tribute, murdering religious leaders etc. Not sure our Anglo-Saxon forebears would be too proud of their descendants paying them homage. This was different by the time of Knut, but still.

    I prefer settlement on the Isles of the North Atlantic by both Völkerwanderung Saxons and Viking Danes without picking sides, but cherishing the fullness of colonisation, eventually of North America and Australia. I'm not happy about the waste of blood for diamonds in South Africa, but CJR was a distant cousin by marriage.

    A better way for me to have put it would have probably been to say that im thankful for the travelling and settling in England and what the contributed via settling, however im am indeed not keen with the violence they bestowed upon Anglo-Saxons, it would have been a lot better for them to recognise them as they're own kind. As a whole i did not mean to promote or justify the violence on Anglo-Saxons, i apologise if my statement came of in that way.

    It mustn't be forgotten that Anglo-Saxons lost Christian Jutes in Canterbury and gained Danes. Maybe leRoux wants to apologise for the ethnic cleansing, I mean fratricide committed by Christian Anglo-Saxons (both Mercia and Wessex) before Heathen Danes could become "Hollywood Vikings" worth despising.

    The way leRoux puts it, suggests that the supposed monsters weren't human before they became Christian and that the supposed victims were never inhuman monsters for being Heathens--or we'll just skip over what both the British monks said about his hapless victims and what said "victims" admitted about their own ancestors. You see, they're all our ancestors and this dehumanising mentality is of Jew origin inherited by Christians regarding evil Goyim Gentiles, but at least the monks were decent enough to write down Beowulf before our true roots were "forgotten" by Pope Gregory rebranding us "Angels, not Angles" when seeing us sold as slaves in his "holy city" of Rome.

    Also let's not forget about Anglo-Saxon kings being descended from Woden, no different than Danish kings from Odin. It's not worth accentuating the differences, when DNA tests don't distinguish between the two. I'm lucky because I'm R1a, I know for sure that I'm Viking, but the average Englishman's DNA can't be separated like wheat and chaff, so cherish the indistinguishable nature of blood.

    You're putting way too many words in my mouth, none of this ever had anything to do with Rome. The fact is that until the 11th century, Danish presence in England wasn't normalised. This was when they became Christian, yes - but I wouldn't claim it's so much because they were Christian, but because they now had a shared religion with the Anglo-Saxons and neither group would thus treat each other so terribly. I'm not so foolish as to ignore the fact that the Anglo-Saxons themselves were a scourge on the pre-Germanic inhabitants of future England. This is history and this always happens. It's just wrong, as an Anglo-Saxon, to pretend that the Viking invasions were negative in an immediate sense. In the long-term of course, England became one of the strongest kingdoms in Europe due to the need to unite under Alfred and future kings to kick them out.

    If I were Scandinavian, I would be very proud of my ancestors. Their legacy is very impressive, especially for originating from an obscure outskirt of Europe.

    I think we should have kept tribal differences and not necessarily had Winchester as capital. A rotating Bretwalda, more like...

    Imagine if Danes still had SkƄne and the Vik, but the Jutes were still around in Jutland and Kent as a folk of their own.
