    The Netherlands are more Germanic than Belgium.

    The Netherlands is culturally Dutch.

    Second comment makes no sense. Belgium is like Switzerland with several non-homogenized ethnic groups, Wallons of Wallonian cultural and Flemings of Flemish Culture.

    According to Julius Caesar in Gallic Wars, the Belgae were a tribe originating in from the Germans. As for Celts, the only people called Celts by the Romans were in Gaul. We have no records of anyone ever calling Irish people Celts in ancient times. It was only in the early 1900's when Irish people started calling themselves Celts because academics tried to say Ireland was related to the Celts of France, but this research is very spurious.

    The Gaulish language sounds about as close to Irish language as Latin does. Just look at the Gaulish language and compare it to Irish, they sound nothing alike, and what similarities they do have you could find between Latin and Irish.

    The Belgae were throughout Gaul though in addition to the Celtic tribes, and again there is no evidence that the Irish were ever Celts.

    Furthermore in the history of the Netherlands there has been an enormous amount of different invasions from different tribes. From the `Hunnebed` builders to the Celts to the Germanics, to the Romans, to the French Hugenots, to the Spanish occupation, to the French occupation, Jews, Germans, Austrians etc

    My estimation therefore is that the average Dutch person has 30 % germanic blood and 70 % other. But you can discuss about percentages endlessly, so this is a bit stupid.

    The only Dutch people that consider themselves Germanic are the Nazi/Skinhead Dutch people.

    The average normal Dutch citizens dont consider themselves Germanic. They consider themselves just Dutch and white. Nothing more, nothing less.

    To summarize : Dutch people are a mixture of a large amount of different tribes. The only thing that all these tribes have in common is that they are all white.

    This accounts also for all other European countries. All Europeans are mixed of several white tribes.

    I haven't read this thread, which I suppose leaves me open to criticism, but if we're having to ask ourselves "How Germanic are the Netherlands" we might just as well pack up now

    At least the Dutch written language seems to be the closest living language to Proto-Germanic, as in sharing the most similarities.
