Vangiones - Authority in Tribe from to
The Vangiones appear first in history as an ancient Germanic tribe of unknown provenance. They threw in their lot with Ariovistus in his bid of 58 BC to invade Gaul through the Doubs river valley and lost to Julius Caesar in a battle probably near Belfort.

After some Celts evacuated the region in fear of the Suebi, the Vangiones, who had made a Roman peace, were allowed to settle among the Mediomatrici in northern Alsace.

They were inducted into the Roman Army, although mainly used for guard duty on the far-flung northern frontier of the province of Britannia, Hadrian's Wall.
