Sixteen hundred years ago, the people whom we call Germans, were like a long belt of hostile barbarians, stretching from Friesland to the sea of Azov, and pressing upon the Celtic and other fringes that separated them from Rome and Byzantium. They called themselves Thiuda or Theod= The People ; and their language was Theodish = Vernacular. They were livided into many tribes. In the extreme South-East were the Gut-Thiuda (Good People or Goths); in the extreme North-West were the Sakis-Kun or Secgas-Kyn (Saxons, or The Fighting Race). A little north of these were the inhabitants of Schleswig-Holstein, who were called the men of the Narrow Land (Ængra-land) to whose descendants were applied the phrases Engeltheod and Engel-cyn. Above them, the men of Geatland or Jutland (= The Projected).

The March-men of Middle Europe (Marcomanni) who came into contact rrith the Latin-speaking Cisalpine Gauls, called them Wealh_and their language Wealisħ, and this name, although primarily applied to Latin, came to mean simply Foreign in the speech of the later Thiuds. But in the fifth century it still meant Latin and was used by the Angles and Saxons in reference to the Latin-speaking Britons of this island ; and they continued to use it in reference to the Cumbrian or Cymric kinsmen and successors of those Britons. The Gauls called their unruly neighbours Garmăni, and that name was taken over by the Latin writers, who confounded it with their own rcord germāni, and thus the name of Germania has been evolved.

When the Theods came to Britain fourteen hundred and fifty years ago, they came in three sorts, as they are described, as 1, Angles, 2, Jutes, and 3, Saxons; but they were all of the same race and might be more exactly *poken of as 1, Saxons from Schleswig-Holstein, 2, Saxons from Jutland, and 3, Saxons from Friesland and Westphalia ; but the first two had their local listinctions, and the men of Friesland and Westphalia were the only division that retained the general appellation of Fighting Men.
