    British history is the greatest. The Anglo Saxons are the direct descendants of the Cherusci of Herman. Of this input into Britain, most of it was Anglian, which is the same as Danish. The British were then organised by a Norman (Northman) aristocracy into the worlds greatest Empire and war Machine.
    The parent of the American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and South African nations.
    But also the organisers of many other modern nations.
    At the time of the revolt against Varus the Anglo-Saxons only numbered perhaps 100,000 people, Today they have upto 300 million descendants.
    In all this history we lost sight that Germania was our common motherland. Sight must not be lost also of the input of Celtic tribes into our Empire. Their culture forbade Empire building, since they claimed they could conquer the world over-night. And it is true that Scots, Irish and Welsh provided some of our fiercest shock troops, without whom we could not have seized so much living space for our people.

    It has to be either the Franks or the Saxons. Although all Germanic folk are quite accomplished.

    The Franks first because the Carolingian Renaissance ushered Europe out of the "Dark Ages". They're also the primary progenitors of the modern Dutch, Flemish, Luxembergers, Rhenish, Hessians and Franconians. All an extremely accomplished people in terms of achievements. Not to mention Northeastern France has a ton of Frankish blood.

    The Saxons are obvious because they're the main progenitors of most Northern Germans and Southern English and their diaspora. The accomplishments of these people speak for themself.

    Is there much that is known about the Teutons? From what I know, they're only mentioned in Roman texts, in connection to the Cimbrian war around 100 BC. They were subsequently decimated by the Romans, and didn't leave behind much traces of themselves.

    My humbled tribe, the Swabians. The Swabians has appeared in the coast of the Baltic see in modern Mecklenburg-Vorpommern federal state of the German Federal Republic. My tribe went southward. One group went to Gallia and after Hispania where they made a kingdom in Northwest part of Hispania (today Galicia of Spain and north Portugal)what later the Visigoths conquered. The other part of the tribe conquer the valley of north Danube. After the Ottoman turks expelled from the Hungarian Kingdom, my ancestors settled in the vastelands of the Carpathian basin. The number of Swabian of the Carpathian basin was more than 2 million before the II WW. Nowadays 200–220'000 Swabians live in the modern Hungary by the Hungarian Wikipedia. We lived, we live and we will live in the Carpathian basin. It is a great fortune to measure the contemporary German population of Poland, the half country was German land in the past.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."
    /King Baldwin IV in the Kingdom of Heaven/

    I voted Goths. Hard to compete with giving the Western Roman Empire its death blow. Too bad they didn't preserve themselves as a distinct Nation into our times. Would have loved to see the distinct Gothic culture, architecture, language and People evolve.
