    I don't believe that myth that people are getting taller each generation. We have a much higher fat intake and thus higher testosterone levels and that ups the height a bit but in relation to graves we have changed maybe an inch or two since the days of the vikings. I would say the taller the better as long as your not over 7 foot since health complications arise past that point.

    Interesting how the general consensus is taller = better! The ideal height seems to be one greater than the majority of germanics, making most 'vertically inadequate'

    I'm 5'11".

    Seven feet would look stupid. You would have to eat massive amounts and you would be quite inefficient as you would be spending more time satisfying the body (eating, sleeping, etc.). Also, if anything were to happen (loss of civilisation) you would not survive, but would quickly die due to your high intact, clumsiness, lack of flexibility, and slow reaction and movement speeds.

    In addition to what I said. As long as you aren't a dwarf there is no insufficiency in height. Granted, being a sport fighter, I can tell you a bigger and taller male will have a much great advantage over getting his own territory but this is the age of the consumer so it shouldn't matter.

    I think these are faulty assumptions. I have a 6-5 friend who is definitely not a beanpole and stockier than many shorter people. I am 6-3 and more flexible and have better reflexes than most people shorter than me (can easily kick the top of doorframes)

    You practice martial arts ? Tall stature can be usefull in fighting sports indeed.
    (well, i don't need to Kick. My hands are destructive enough )


    However the initial discussion turns in the usual way : Height is important, and genetically determined yes, but it's not the most important factor , per sè ; bones structure and muscular fibre potential are even more important in the general perception of the people. So.......the most appropriate title of the thread should be : IDEAL LOOK of a GERMANIC MALE.

    Only 'medieval martial arts' through a historical reenactment group (roughly equivalent to riot police beating on eachother)

    By my personal judgment, the ideal height of us Germanic males is 6' to 6'4". (182-193), the ideal "mean" being around 6'2". Even though I come from an area where to be taller than 5'11" (180) is reserved to about 10% of the population, I have always found it awkward to be around people of that height. Most of the males in my family in the living generations measures in somewhere between 6' and 6'4" so that is obviously the people I feel most comfortable around. I do have a few friends who are shorter than 6' but even though I "only" measure about 6'1.5" (186) I tend to look down on lads who measure in at about 5'10"-6'.

    The ideal height of the Germanic female finally is 5'2" to 5'6", with the ideal mean being around 5'4". I have never failed to stress that. Don't ask my why, but that's the way it is ... maybe because the majority of females in the living generations of my family are/were of that height and it is hence what I am most familiar with? Anything up to 5'9" or down to 5' can pretty much catch my eye but there'd have to be something about her personality that elevates her above the rest, otherwise it's pretty futile to make me feel comfortable enough beyond the "friends" level around her.
