“Hermann” (or “Arminius” as he was known to the Romans) successfully led an alliance of Germanic tribes in the crushing defeat of three Roman legions at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in 9 A.D. The battle effectively put a permanent halt to the expansion plans of the Roman Empire into territories east of the Rhine river.
