Arminius a.k.a. Hermann the German ( 18/17 BC-AD 21) led the betrayal of the Romans and Emporer Valens. Arminius took his Gremans and planned out an ambush weeks before the march through the forest. When the time was right, Arminus and the Germans lauched a full on assault that split the Romans up, causing chaos in the ranks. When it was all over, the 17th,18th, and 19th legions of the Roman army were all dead. Up to this point, Rome had never been defeated by barbarians.
