    First one is the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in Germany. Fought between Germanic tribes (Teutons) and the Roman Empire in year 9. The Germanic tribes (led by a Germanic prince raised in Rome) won decisively.

    Second one is the Battle of Alesia, in France.It was fought between Roman forces and Gauls in 52 BCE. The Romans (lead by Gaius Julius Caesar) defeated the gauls (lead by Vercingetorix, who is probably know by a lot of people from the Asterix comics).

    Battle 1- The Battle of Vosges, also referred to as the Battle of Vesontio, was fought between the Germanic tribe of the Suebi under the leadership of Ariovistus against six Roman legions under the command of Gaius Julius Caesar in 58 BC. This encounter is the third major battle of the Gallic Wars. Germanic tribes crossed the Rhine, seeking a home in Gaul.

  • Pretty easy quiz

    Battle 1 is known as The ambush that changed the history or Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. The massacre of three entire Roman legions, along with significant auxiliary units and cavalry, by German tribes ensured that the lands east of the Rhine were never incorporated into the Roman Empire. It was from here that the fatal barbarian invasions would come to destroy the empire almost four centuries later. So:
    - The tribes that took place were Teutons and Romans;
    - The battle took place in Autumn 9 CE;
    - The united teuton tribes lead by Armen defeated 3 roman legions lead by Publius Quinctilius Varus.

    Battle 2 is known as one of Julius Caesar's greatest achievements in life - the Battle of Alesia. It had been a long, bloody, and noble siege against the Gallic warriors of Vercingetorix.
    - The tribes that took place were Romans and Gauls;
    - The battle took place in September, 52 BCE;
    - Romans defeated the Gauls.

    With great pleasure to answer the quiz

  • 1. Battle of Teutoburg Forest; battle took place in/around 9 C.E.; there is dispute about where the battle took place, but most people believe that it took place near Osnabrück in northwest Germany; battle was between the Romans and the Germanic tribes (Teutons); Germanic tribes annihilated the Romans in a running battle.

    2. Battle of Alesia; battle took place in 52 BC; battle took place in modern day France, there is dispute about the exact location; battle was between the Romans, led by Julius Caesar, and the Gallic tribes (Gauls); In fact, the battle is actually two battles in one. The first, the Romans surrounded the small force led by Vercingetorix, which is illustrated by the blue marking on the map. The Romans built a defensive/offensive wall to prevent a breakout from the enclosed fortress, which is illustrated by the red lines on the map. The second, in an effort to relieve the Vercingetorix's forces, the Gallic tribes united (somewhat) and marched a relief force to Alesia. Caesar then built a defensive wall, encircling his troops and effectively sandwiching himself between the two Gallic forces. This is represented by the black line. Despite attempts to break through, Caesar was able to stave off the relief force and ultimately force the Gauls to surrender. Roman victory that resulted in the subjugation of Gaul.
