The Germanian Tribes came from both the Germanic and Celtic ethnic groups, and settles in the lush plains of Germany, in between a number of influential rivers, like the Danube, Elbe, Rhine, Vistula, and Oder.
The Germanian people who resulted from the two main cultures formed into a series of small tribes, which were often very clan-like. Starting in 230 BC, three main clans came to power, focused around the major cities of Vienna (on the Danube) and Dresden (on the Elbe). and Posen (on the Warta - a branch of the Oder).
By 220 BC, Dresden had overtaken Posen, and they were near unification, while Vienna and the Danube were also near unification.
In 215 BC, a radical change shook the Germanian peoples. A Marcomanni chief, ruling from Vienna, began uniting the Germanian tribes by both force and negotiation, and established the Kingdom of the Danube. Soon after, a Burgundioni chief, ruling from Dresden, merged Posen and Dresden, and also using force, conquered the rest of the Germanians into the Kingdom of the Elbe.
