Excerpt from book:
The Third Step towards Civilisation. EDUCATION AND LEGAL RIGHTS; When the petty states were somewhat settled, what arrangement did they make for greater strength ? Several tribes united into a confederacy, and chose one man for their war-chief. Name some of these confederacies? The English in the north, the Franks in the Lower Rhine, and the Alemanni between the Danube and the Rhine. Of what did the English confederacy consist? Of the Engles, Jutes, and Saxons. The first were squatters about Sleswick, the Jutes were a tribe to their north, and the Saxons to their south. Of what did the Frank confederacy consist? Of seven tribes, the chief of which was the Salian. Of what did the Alemanni confederacy consist ? All the tribes on both sides of the Rhine, together with those in Suabia. The word means " All-men." What great changes took place betwcen the fifth and seventh centuries ? Several tribes, parts of tribes, or tribal confederacies, quitted German soil for other lands. § Which confederacy crossed over into Smith Britain ? The English, who succeeded in conquering the British, and establishing themselves in the island. Whom did they select for their army-chief? Hengist, who belonged to the Saxon branch; but the Engles were the most powerful of the three tribes. How is this known ?

A part of the Vandals, who founded a kingdom in Africa, having Carthage for its capital. What part moved further south, and gained footing in Italy? The East Goths, who established themselves there under Theodoric, but were sub...
