    The Franks because of their achievements in creating a (more or less) Pan-Germanic Empire which gave birth to Germany and France.
    I sorry but I don't know if the Cheruski were the tribe of Arminus or Herrmann or not. Without Herrmann, there would be much fewer German tribes, if any, so his tribe was important.

    Beside this, how can anyone argue with the Saxons as being the most important? They were a large tribe and helped found both England and Germany. The only other possible contender are the Franks.

    I must go with Cheruski...I do find them important for keeping out the roman empire. But mainly because my family is from the rhine area ;p

    It is the Saxons that have had the most impact upon the world and upon history through the formation of the English nation.

    I've gotten a book about the history of the Langobardians, for 'Sinterklaas' (Dutch x-mas-like tradition), which is very interesting. (Started in it yesterday night).

    Goths. After all they were known as somewhat of a "super-race" among their contemporaries, and the word itself is related to the word for "God/Gods" (Edred Flowers says this, and I have no reason to argue since I am myself mostly Gothic). Basically they left their ancient home in todays Götaland, and founded several empires very far away. I suspect that many Vikings were of Gothic heritage as well.

    And there is still some of the Goth left in Western Sweden. Stalinism, Devil-worship and National Socialism all have had strongholds on the westcoast during the 20th century here. We are just a little more evil than the rest, blue eyed devils.

    Northmen.

    But of course, since there are more Frenchmen and Englishmen on the board, the Franks and Saxons will probably get more votes.

    But northern cultural achivments are a little low. The Goths first translated the Bibel and developed the first germanic written language. Besides their king Theja killed in the final battle all roman nobles under 25. That is bloodlust.

    Thumbs Up Re: Which Germanic tribe has the most impressive history and achievements?

    Hermann and the Cherusci, as they saved Germany from a similar fate to Gaul, allowin gall else that followed. As well as evolving into the English, who basically conquered the World. Fairly impressive effort for a figment of the imagination.

    Why the continental Saxons clung to the Old Ways for so long whilst their English kin converted so quickly I'm still scratching my head over though.

    The way the Harii allegedly painted themselves black for their Special Forces missions always made me laugh, and how bad must the Vandals have been to have coined the pastime they bequeathed their name to.
