Franks and Saxon s ravaged the coasts of northern Gaul and Britain, and for the next three centuries incursions by Germanic peoples were the scourge of the Western Empire.
Nevertheless, it was only with German help that the empire was able to survive as long as it did. His main achievement was to complete the new system of Saxon Shore forts around the southeastern coasts.
At first he sought recognition as coemperor, but this was refused. United Kingdom: The invaders and their early settlements.
Archaeology, however, suggests a more complex picture showing many tribal elements, Frankish leadership in the first waves, and Frisian contacts.

Retrieved 14 August Retrieved 14 September The Saxons of Bayeux comprised a standing army and were often called upon to serve alongside the local levy of their region in Merovingian military campaigns.
In , the Saxons wore their hair in the Breton fashion at the orders of Fredegund and fought with them as allies against Guntram.
One of their own, Aeghyna , was created a dux over the region of Vasconia. In and under king Charles the Bald , other official documents mention a pagus called Otlinga Saxonia in the Bessin region, but the meaning of Otlinga is unclear.
It is the only place name in Normandy that can be interpreted as a -tun one English -ton ; cf. Other cases were considered, but there is no determining example.
In addition, archaeological finds add evidence to the documents and the results of toponymic research. The oldest and most spectacular Saxon site found in France to date is Vron , in Picardy.
Physically different from the usual local inhabitants found before this period, they instead resembled the Germanic populations of the north.
Starting around AD the burials are located in the region known in Roman times as the Saxon Shores. Starting from around AD the burial ground displaced eastward.
The burials were now arranged in rows and displayed a strong Anglo-Saxon influence until around AD, when this influence subsided.
Archaeological material, neighbouring toponymy, and historical accounts support the conclusion of settlement of Saxon foederati with their families on the shores of the English Channel.
Saxons, along with Angles , Frisians and Jutes , invaded or migrated to the island of Great Britain Britannia around the time of the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.
Saxon raiders had been harassing the eastern and southern shores of Britannia for centuries before, prompting the construction of a string of coastal forts called the Litora Saxonica or Saxon Shore.
Before the end of Roman rule in Britannia, many Saxons and other folk had been permitted to settle in these areas as farmers.
According to tradition, the Saxons and other tribes first entered Britain en masse as part of an agreement to protect the Britons from the incursions of the Picts , Gaels and others.
The story, as reported in such sources as the Historia Brittonum and Gildas , indicates that the British king Vortigern allowed the Germanic warlords, later named as Hengist and Horsa by Bede , to settle their people on the Isle of Thanet in exchange for their service as mercenaries.
According to Bede, Hengist manipulated Vortigern into granting more land and allowing for more settlers to come in, paving the way for the Germanic settlement of Britain.
Historians are divided about what followed: some argue that the takeover of southern Great Britain by the Anglo-Saxons was peaceful. For the fire In these assaults Lamentable to behold, in the midst of the streets lay the tops of lofty towers, tumbled to the ground, stones of high walls, holy altars, fragments of human bodies, covered with livid clots of coagulated blood, looking as if they had been squeezed together in a press; and with no chance of being buried, save in the ruins of the houses, or in the ravening bellies of wild beasts and birds; with reverence be it spoken for their blessed souls, if, indeed, there were many found who were carried, at that time, into the high heaven by the holy angels Some, therefore, of the miserable remnant, being taken in the mountains, were murdered in great numbers; others, constrained by famine , came and yielded themselves to be slaves for ever to their foes, running the risk of being instantly slain, which truly was the greatest favour that could be offered them: some others passed beyond the seas with loud lamentations instead of the voice of exhortation Others, committing the safeguard of their lives, which were in continual jeopardy, to the mountains, precipices, thickly wooded forests and to the rocks of the seas albeit with trembling hearts , remained still in their country.
Gildas described how the Saxons were later slaughtered at the battle of Mons Badonicus 44 years before he wrote his history, and their conquest of Britain halted.
The 8th-century English historian Bede tells how their advance resumed thereafter. He said this resulted in a swift overrunning of the entirety of South-Eastern Britain, and the foundation of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms.
During the period of the reigns from Egbert to Alfred the Great , the kings of Wessex emerged as Bretwalda , unifying the country.
They eventually organised it as the kingdom of England in the face of Viking invasions. The Continental Saxons living in what was known as Old Saxony c.
After subjugation by the Emperor Charlemagne , a political entity called the Duchy of Saxony appeared, covering Westphalia, Eastphalia, Angria and Nordalbingia Holstein, southern part of modern-day Schleswig-Holstein state.
The Saxons long resisted becoming Christians  and being incorporated into the orbit of the Frankish kingdom. This was an oft-repeated pattern when Charlemagne was distracted by other matters.
With defeat came enforced baptism and conversion as well as the union of the Saxons with the rest of the Germanic, Frankish empire. Their sacred tree or pillar, a symbol of Irminsul , was destroyed.
Charlemagne also deported 10, Nordalbingian Saxons to Neustria and gave their now largely vacant lands in Wagria approximately modern Plön and Ostholstein districts to the loyal king of the Abotrites.
Einhard , Charlemagne's biographer, says on the closing of this grand conflict:. The war that had lasted so many years was at length ended by their acceding to the terms offered by the king; which were renunciation of their national religious customs and the worship of devils, acceptance of the sacraments of the Christian faith and religion, and union with the Franks to form one people.
Under Carolingian rule , the Saxons were reduced to tributary status. There is evidence that the Saxons, as well as Slavic tributaries such as the Abodrites and the Wends , often provided troops to their Carolingian overlords.
The dukes of Saxony became kings Henry I , the Fowler, and later the first emperors Henry's son, Otto I, the Great of Germany during the 10th century, but they lost this position in The duchy was divided in when Duke Henry the Lion refused to follow his cousin, Emperor Frederick Barbarossa , into war in Lombardy.
During the High Middle Ages , under the Salian emperors and, later, under the Teutonic Knights , German settlers moved east of the Saale into the area of a western Slavic tribe, the Sorbs.
The Sorbs were gradually Germanised. This region subsequently acquired the name Saxony through political circumstances, though it was initially called the March of Meissen.
The rulers of Meissen acquired control of the Duchy of Saxony only a remnant of the previous Duchy in ; they eventually applied the name Saxony to the whole of their kingdom.
Since then, this part of eastern Germany has been referred to as Saxony German : Sachsen , a source of some misunderstanding about the original homeland of the Saxons, with a central part in the present-day German state of Lower Saxony German: Niedersachsen.
Bede , a Northumbrian writing around the year , remarks that "the old that is, the continental Saxons have no king, but they are governed by several ealdormen or satrapa who, during war, cast lots for leadership but who, in time of peace, are equal in power.
Each Gau had its own satrap with enough military power to level whole villages that opposed him.
In the mid-9th century, Nithard first described the social structure of the Saxons beneath their leaders.
The caste structure was rigid; in the Saxon language the three castes, excluding slaves, were called the edhilingui related to the term aetheling , frilingi and lazzi.
