The Dark Ages

The Angles were a Germanic tribe that settled in Great Britain. The Angles practiced paganism as their main region before converting to Christianity like many of the tribes during this time period. Their invasions were results of wanting more land which caused them to invade many places, such as Britain. The Angles practiced a monarchy type of government throughout their time. In time, the Angles joined sides with the Saxons to become the Anglo-Saxons tribe. Many of their beliefs stayed the same, but some had to change to keep everyone at bay.
The Saxons were a Germanic tribe that is believed to have colonized near the North Sea in an area between the Elbe and Eider rivers in present day Holstein which is in the current country of Germany. They practiced paganism like other tribes. They invaded areas north of their location wanting to gain more land for their growing population. The Saxons had a monarchy government, and some say they had several sub-kingdoms with their own ruler or king.
The Visigoths were a barbaric tribe local to the Delta of the Danube River. They practiced Arian Christianity as their main religion before changing to Roman Catholicism several years later. The reasoning behind their invasions were the search for supplies, power, and the establishment of their beliefs for others of the region. The Visigoths also had a monarchy type of government.
The Ostrogoths were a Germanic tribe that inahbited in Pannonia before relocating to Italy after obtaining their independence from the Huns. They were practiced Arian Christian and their invasions were the result of wanting to increase their numbers and spread their beliefs. The Ostrogoths had a monarchy form of government.
The Jutes were considered to be one of the most powerful of the Germanic tribes of their time. They started in the Jutland penisula which is modern day Denmark. They too, practiced Paganism as their main religion. They invaded Britain, for the reason of wanting more land like other tribes. Their form of government was a monarchy like many other civilizations.
The Lombards or the Langobarbs orignially, were a Germanic tribe that settled in Southern Sweden and layter migrated to Italy. After their movement to Italy, they changed into Italian speakers and coverted to Catholicism. later on, they becamed involved in political issues with the pope, who then called upon the Franks when their relationship reached a hostile point. The Lombards' inavasion was a result of wanting more land and establish their form of living in those lands (monarchy, society, and religion).
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
The Franks were a German tribe that was spread out across upon the Roman provinces of Gaul. Over time, they wouuld later become French people. The Franks were a tribe of religious Christians, who in the end became Catholics under order of one of their kings. Many of the inavasions the Franks took part in were a result of their religious beliefs, their yearning for land, money, and power. The Franks had a monarchy type of government.

The Goths were a tribe of Germanic people that began in Sweden and spread across the Mediterranean. They were the first Germanic group to practice Christianity. Prior to splitting into two groups, they invaded and attacked Rome several times. The reason the Goths attacked was becuase they wanted more land. This is why they invaded many areas. They had a monarchy form of government like many of the early tribes. Before seperating into the two groups known as the Ostrogoths and the Visigoths, the Goths shared the same characteristics/skills in the tribe. Their seperation caused this to chage.
