Julius Caesar's legions first met these fierce Tribes in around 50BC through the Gallic War (where he also met the Celts). Direct Roman attacks on German tribes began again under Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus, who pushed across the Rhine in 12-9 BC, while other Roman forces assaulted Germanic tribes through the middle Danube.

Fierce fighting in both areas, and the famous victory of the German Arminius in the Teutoburger Forest in AD 9 (when three Roman legions were massacred), showed the Romans that conquering these tribes would require too much effort.
