      How come Slavs don’t have any historical reputation for being great warriors like Germanic tribes? They took over half of Europe, didn’t they?

      Russia was a great military power for much of its existence, so i would say they did?

      Eastern Europe was a sparsely populated backwater so they just settled in uninhabited lands.

      Yes, but Slavs were not the ones to conquer. They tagged along with their Hunno-Turkic steppe overlords and produced bread for their masters who did all the conquering. That’s why Slavs aren’t warriors but farmers.

        What made Slavs so unwarlike in comparison to the Germanic people? I thought being warlike was inherent to all Aryans.

        Slavic Y-DNA is pretty widespread all over East and South East Europe, though. Their impact on the Balkans was greater than Germanic impact on West and South West Europe.

          “Daurentius is the first Slavic chieftain to be recorded by name, by the Byzantine historian Menander Protector, who reported that the Avar khagan Bayan I sent an embassy, asking Daurentius and his Slavs to accept Avar suzerainty and pay tribute, because the Avars knew that the Slavs had amassed great wealth after repeatedly plundering the Byzantine Balkan provinces. Daurentius reportedly retorted that "Others do not conquer our land, we conquer theirs […] so it shall always be for us.”

          Daurentius (to the Avar envoy): "Who is, then, the man which basks in sunlight that threatens to conquer our strength? We are used to ruling over others, not to being ruled over – of that we are certain for as long as wars are waged and swords are forged".

          Menander Protector:
          "(…) About the fourth year of the reign of Caesar Tiberius Constantine, some hundred thousand Slavs broke into Thrace, and pillaged that and many other regions. As Greece was being laid waste by the Slavs, with trouble liable to flare up anywhere, and as Tiberius had at his disposal by no means sufficient forces, he sent a delegation to the Khagan of the Avars. (…)"

          Categorically false, the Sclavenes and the Antes were sovereign entities, and were that powerful that not even the Avars (Roman allies initially) and the Romans could defeat them, and stop their conquest of Roman territories, the Avars would then be all but exterminated by White Croats and White Serbs just 30-40 years later. Also, the Early Slavs expanded and conquered non-Slavs, whether they were "Romans", Germanic tribes (leftover East Germanic, Heruli, Vidivarii, the Rugii), or Turkic tribes (Avars, Pechenegs, Tatars). Unlike Germanic tribes, Slavic conquest was accomplished through fire and sword, not subversion of Roman institutions primarily from within.

            Yeah, I’ve always found this fascinating. Germany was a continuation of Charlemange’s roman-esque civilization whereas Poles, Russians, and somewhat Czechs built their civilizations from the ground up.

        Slavs migrated after the Huns dissintegrated and were slaughtered by Germanoids you illiterate fucktard.

        I thought at least basic historical knowledge and timeline was to be expected on his for fucks sake.

        Slavshits started migrating in the 500s, and they fought the fuck out of everyone.

        Even many Avar graves are found to be of male Slavshit ancestry, and De Administrando Imperio literally describes Croats forming as a nation in the Balkans by invading the freaking khanate, massacring Avars and subduing the survivors there into servitude.

        freaking read before talking out of ass.

      No idea. It’s said that you couldn’t tell the difference between Polabian, Pommeranian, or Viking raiders until you could hear them speak. No one talks about the great Pommeranian sea raiders who also pillaged Brittain, France, and Germany. We are just in a very germano-centric world.

      sis you scrotebrained. The only thing Russians are famous for is borscht, vodka, communism, and pooping all over Napoleon and Hitler

        Because they weren’t great warriors. They swarmed after the huns once they had crawled out of their swamps in asia. They are known as rapists and murderers, not "great conquerors".
        You forgot rape and murder.

          slavs i’d say are considered one of the "warrior races" for sure. i was talking to a taiwanese girl and the only thing she knew about russians is that they’re "fighters", though to be fair she could have been thinking of UFC where all those guys are really dagistani and chechens instead of actual russians

      The Byzantines thought of them as tricksters on the battlefield and interestingly enough later chroniclers from slavic countries praised their legendary(made up) rulers for trickery on the battlefield. Take it as you will.

      It is really impressive how they were able to assimilate non-slavic people into slavic culture in late antiquity/early middle ages. Their culture must have been very inviting.

        >assimilate
        The old Iron Age Balkan ancestry is pretty much dead. Slavs replaced up to 70% of local ancestry.

          It was very alive in late antiquity and early middle ages when they were slavicized.

            Yeah, and not much of it was left. There’s still plenty of local Y-DNA there so it wasn’t CWC/Bell Beaker tier rape.

        They just didn’t advertise themselves very well in Western Europe. The Magyars stole the show from them.
