Why were Germanics too powerful for Romans? Posted on May 24, 2023 by Anonymous Why were Germanics too powerful for Romans?
The establishment of barbarian kingdoms was a gradual process that happened with Roman consent. The central bureaucracy became dead weight which allowed them to inherit the lands they were controlling as vassals of Rome.
The battered wife post. "S-sure you can take more than what your foedus entails, we were going to give it to you anyway h-haha, don't plunder too much communities on the way..."
They had already given up on governing those territories and subcontracted it out to local barbarian lords.
The Western Roman bureaucracy couldn't get it's act together and eventually just dissolved
That doesn't have anything to do with the hilarious definitio of "consent" this thesis would need to make sense.
>Rome: Alaric, govern this territory
: Hey what should I do about this issue?
a year for a response, gets nothing back
: Okay so I guess we should do something about this
>average anon's level of reading comprehension
>They had already given up
Because they lost. Glad we agree.

qa won. get over it
Literally the cause of the decline of Rome was its final and apocalyptic war with Persia before the arrival of the Antichrist 666 Muhammad.
Germanics were the plague of demons with hair like women from Revelations who decimated the Christian Mediterranean World before the Katechon (Justinian/Heraclius/Emperors/Imperial power) finished them off.
8 They had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.
9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle.
10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
The plague was always a lack of ethnic pride and nationality, that's why corrupt generals and governors kept inviting foreigners into their lands, the ERE did the same.
Most invasions in history have been welcomed.
Take your meds christcuck
>the cause of the decline of Rome was a couple of wars that it’s rump state fought after the heart of the Roman Empire had already fallen
If you’re looking for a “cause” for the decline of the empire, you don’t start with the weird spin-off state in a completely different geographical location that somehow outlasted the EPONYMOUS REGION OF THE EMPIRE THAT HAD ALREADY FALLEN you dingbat
Also the eastern empire survived these events by like another 800 years so you’re just doubly wrong
>the rulling class is swarthy armenoids/semitoids while the soldier class is brown haired white natives
christianity not even once.
The final Roman-Sassanian war was the war of gog and magog.
The west was weakened incredibly at the time and the foederati didn't help matters. Also, why does it matter that Rome didn't conquer all of Germania? There was no real reason to; it was heavily forested with no real population centers.
Ah yes the roman era of poland
>Royal House of Latin original
>The normans/anjou some British Monarchy.
You better prove that one with some hard facts lmao.
The romans fucked up their demographics and their entire society to the point where the germanics could push into the power vacuum. The slavs did the same in the balkans even though they were even less developed.
Slavs were kept at bay until Maurice. Slavs succeeded for the same reason the arabs did, civil war and the war with the sassanids.
Christianization alienates the western rural pagan masses that used to be the main source of manpower and they become indifferent to the state they were supposed to serve.
Local tribes in Britain are armed to fight off the great conspiracy and roman government dissolves aside from the legions still there, until Constantine III brings them to the continent in his bid for the throne.
Client chiefdoms on the frontier become the main source of troops for still roman warlords in successive civil wars and their elites serving at the time under still roman generals quickly christianized.
All these germanic troops meant germanic officials climbed the ranks to the point Stillicho becomes effective regent for Honorius.
Great migration of 406 and the execution of Stillicho precipitate mutinies by troops both roman and germanic.
Fragile balance is achieved by the next decade with foederati kings established far from Italy under nominal roman rule.
Few usurpers later and these foederati have taken over much of the roman west. Vandal conquest of Africa and the mediterranean permanently cripples the western empire.

Why are the balkans not blue? Ostrogoths conquered them.
Getmanicus conquered up to the elbe
