Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD

Ancient Rome’s persistent attempts to subjugate Magna Germania were permanently halted after the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD… After this decisive German victory, the Emperor Augustus, according to the Roman historian Suetonius, was so shaken that he stood butting his head against the walls of his palace, repeatedly shouting: "Quintili Vare, legiones redde!“ (‘Quintilius Varus, give me back my legions!’). Augustus ordered a Roman withdrawal from all of Magna Germania (completed by AD 16) and established the boundary of the Roman Empire as being the Rhine and the Danube.
