    It's the other way round the Wends are the same stock as the Vandals and hence an Eastern Germanic people. That there slavic languages spoken now in central Eastern Europe is due to more recent changes.

    There's a half-preserved legend in the Langobardorum of a battle between the Winniles, who would become the Lombards, and the Vandals (Wendels). Who knows how old the story was when Paul the Deacon wrote.

    I did enjoy the History Channel special on The Barbarians, also Attila with Gerard Butler and Powers Boothe. Yes, I thought the same thing as Awar about Eaters of the Dead. The Wends have to be assimilated Vandals, but I refuse to count Berbers as Germanics despite the fact that they're the Whitest Africans outside Egypt. The poor choice to subracially classify Berbers as Nordics has resulted in MENA hordes being justified on TA as indistinguishable and unjustly deemed racial foreigners not just from Europe, but the Mediterranean in particular. Whatever the fate of local client-kings, governors and the Vandal tribe itself beyond Andalusia, this doesn't help the Rapefugee cause. I'm actually equally curious about what happened to the Alans.
