Names of Germany Roman limes and modern boundaries. The German term Deutsche originates from the Old High German word diutisc from diot "people"referring to the Germanic "language of the people".
It is not clear how commonly, if at all, the word was used as an ethnonym in Old High German. Used as a noun, ein diutscher in the sense of "a German" emerges in Middle High Germanattested from the second half of the 12th century. It was loaned into Middle English as almains in the early 14th century.
The word Dutch is attested in English from the 14th century, denoting continental West Germanic "Dutch" and "German" dialects and their speakers.
The English term Germans is only attested from the midth century, based on the classical Latin term Germani used by Julius Caesar and later Tacitus.
It gradually replaced Dutch and Almains, the latter becoming mostly obsolete by the early 18th century.
Originally part of the Holy Roman Empirearound independent German states emerged during its decline after the Peace of Westphalia in ending the Thirty Years War.
These states eventually formed into modern Germany in the 19th century. By 55 BC, the Germans[ citation needed ] had reached the Danube river and had either assimilated or otherwise driven out the Celts who had lived there, and had spread west into what is now Belgium and France.
The Limes Germanicus was breached in AD Migrating Germanic tribes commingled with the local Gallo-Roman populations in what is now Swabia and Bavaria.
The arrival of the Huns in Europe resulted in Hun conquest of large parts of Eastern Europe, the Huns initially were allies of the Roman Empire who fought against Germanic tribes, but later the Huns cooperated with the Germanic tribe of the Ostrogoths, and large numbers of Germans lived within the lands of the Hunnic Empire of Attila.
These five tribes, sometimes with inclusion of the Frisiansare considered as the major groups to take part in the formation of the Germans.
Medieval period Further information: The process was gradual and lacked any clear definition, and the use of exonyms designating "the Germans" develops only during the High Middle Ages.
After Christianizationthe Roman Catholic Church and local rulers led German expansion and settlement in areas inhabited by Slavs and Balts, known as Ostsiedlung.
During the wars waged in the Baltic by the Catholic German Teutonic Knights ; the lands inhabited by the ethnic group of the Old Prussians the current reference to the people known then simply as the "Prussians"were conquered by the Germans. At the same time, naval innovations led to a German domination of trade in the Baltic Sea and parts of Eastern Europe through the Hanseatic League.
Along the trade routes, Hanseatic trade stations became centers of the German culture. German town law Stadtrecht was promoted by the presence of large, relatively wealthy German populations, their influence and political power.
Thus people who would be considered "Germans", with a common culture, language, and worldview different from that of the surrounding rural peoples, colonized trading towns as far north of present-day Germany as Bergen in NorwayStockholm in Swedenand Vyborg now in Russia.
The Hanseatic League was not exclusively German in any ethnic sense: The Empire itself was not entirely German either.Our Thesis Boot Camp is your opportunity to make some serious progress on your thesis – no sleeping bag required!
