My new painting commemorating the Battle of Grunwald, where the combined forces of Polish and Lithuanian knights, crushed the power of the Teutonic Order. It was the largest battle of the Middle Ages.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO AGREE WITH THIS POSTER OR WHAT I AM GOING TO SAY, PLEASE REBLOG THIS.

Lately, I have been seeing so many pagans and christians at each other’s throats on various pages on here. Both of us want to preserve the European Identity of our forefathers. When we go at each other’s throats, it only makes us an easier target for the divide and conquer strategy of the cultural marxists and other enemies we all know. I made this poster of what I consider the elite warriors of both Christianity and Paganism (Templars and Jomsvikings). I realize that these are more specific but I want to reach out for other European pantheons and other Christian denominations that are willing to put Europe first above their religion. 

In conclusion, I think we should respect our differences but cooperate together against our common foes. This infighting only does us more harm.

“In the European Witchcraft traditions, particularly the Teutonic and Celtic, the waning half of the year is “haunted” by the spirits of the Wild Hunt, who gather the forgotten and restless dead in the pack before returning to the realms of the underworld.”

Today is the 9th of September. At this day in the year of 9, an important event took place in Teutoburgerwald in Kalkriese/Osnabrück in German lower Saxony. Three Roman legions, the 17th, the 18th and the 19th and their auxiliaries (up to 20 000 men) - led by Publius Quinctilius Varus – ended up in the epicenter of one of the greatest military disasters of all times.

Arminius of the Cherusci tribe, was brought as a boy to Roman territory as means of keeping peace between the Germanic peoples and the Roman state, and as an aid to make the (dis)integration of the Germanic tribes into the Roman empire easier. A common practice at the time, both in Germania and elsewhere.

Arminius – or Hermann as we know him in Northern Europe – thus became both a Roman and a Germanic tribesman at the same time. His heart however made the decision of where he belonged, when he saw that Pax Romana was introduced in his native lands, at the cost of Germanic dignity and honor. Apparently, his dreams of being an aid in incorporating Germania into Rome came to an abrupt end, as he saw his own blood being treated worse than animals by the state he had been brought up in.

Arminius eventually headed a plot to end Roman imperialism in Germania, which at the time was a loosely knit rural/tribal patchwork sort of community, led by autonomous warlords. Then, on the 9th of September – Pax Romana was obliterated under the might of Furor Teutonicus. General Varus realized where things were heading, and took the easy way out and ended his life by his own sword - while Germanic warriors crushed the remains of panicked and routing Roman soldiers.

Six years later, Roman reconnaissance found scrap bits of what was left of their brothers in arms. This was the last serious attempt by the Roman empire to lay Germania under foot. Later on, the “Berlin wall” of their time, the limes, were abandoned – because those military resources maintaining these positions, were needed elsewhere to keep Rome safe. This was bad news for the remaining Romans, living in their villas along the limes, and who without military protection suffered the consequences of their previously imagined superiority.

If it wasn’t because of the cunning and skillful mind of Arminius, Germanic culture would hardly be known to us today. Thanks to him, alien domination of our souls and minds, wasn’t introduced until at least a thousand years later (in some remote locations, much later). We have him to thank that we have our own Germanic languages – and frankly, we have our beloved Hermann to thank for who we are. Remember him, and let his memory live forever.

The Externsteine

The natural sandstone outcrop of Externsteine is a rare sight in the German Teutoburger forest, which is largely devoid of rocks. Throughout history this remarkable rock formation has been subject to debate, mostly about its possible function as a ‘Germanic’ cult site.

Engineers found Teutonic axes in the Forest District Wipsowo

Three Teutonic battle axes from the late Middle Ages have been found by engineers who removed World War II artillery shells left in the Forest District Wipsowo (Warmia and Mazury). The weapons will be donated to the museum.

Engineers stumbled upon the historic axes by chance, while searching the woods with metal detectors. The weapons have been initially identified by an archaeologist as late-medieval Teutonic battle axes.

Iron axes were close to each other, shallow underground, among the roots of trees. “It can be assumed that this is a deposit that someone left for better times. Read more.
