    I voted the Cheruski because they were the first to rebuff the Roman expansion which at this time already had conquered the whole antique world.

    The Goths because they were the first to sack the city of Rome which stood untouched for centuries, later build their own Kingdom upon the remnants of the western Empire and fought a desperate and heroic battle against the Byzantines.

    The Franks because of their achievements in creating a (more or less) Pan-Germanic Empire which gave birth to Germany and France.

    The Saxons, Franks, and Goths.

    Their lasting resistance against Christianization. They have been the driving force in colonialization of what later became England, and what later on became America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. They remained one of the major elements within Germany. Thus, their lasting influence spreads over Europe and the whole world, more than of any other Germanic tribe. Old English developed from Saxon. And right now, they are busy converting Middle Germany into a nationally liberated zone, eventually saving Germany, thus Europe, thus the whole world in the process.

    Honestly, there is a quite a difference in spirit between Saxons and other German tribes. Compare them to Alemanns. Saxons build empires, Alemanns build houses. Needless to say, Saxons not only have the must beautiful women, but the most beautiful German dialect as well.

    ...if not the universe!
    Seriously, they also now show signs of arrogance towards other Germanic tribes, namely the Bajuwars and other southern Germans, so don´t flatter them too much

    The Alamanns tore down the Limes and gave the Roman Empire countless ruthless invasions.

    Needless to say, Saxons not only have the must beautiful women, but the most beautiful German dialect as well.
    *choke*
    I would say the Suebian dialect is the most beautiful...but this will be another poll...

    I should have voted for the Bavarians as well -- without them no High German; their cultural contributions are highly significant... and they still created an Empire. By marriage primarily... but still an Empire... and not Switzerland.

    Nah, I have nothing against Switzerland, on the contrary. Let the Saxons create an Empire, let the Alemanns design the constitution, and give the administration to the Bavarians, and we will have no problems.

    List of Germanic tribes
    Be advised, some of them are clearly Slavic.
