The Germanic peoples are an ethno-linguistic complex in Northern and Northwestern Europe. The Germanic languages descended from a hypothetical Proto-Germanic language within the Indo-European language family. The first origins of the Ancient Germanic peoples are rather hypothetical; the Germanic languages contain numerous features that are nonexistent in other Indo-European languages. First attested on the North German Plain and in Southern Scandinavia, they clashed with the Romans from the second century BCE onward. Eventually, by the Early Middle Ages, Germanic kingdoms were established on what was once the Western Roman Empire. By this time most Germanic peoples had changed their ancestral polytheistic religion for Christianity.
