Starting on about this day in A.D. 9 former consul and Syrian governor, Varus, a general, lost three Roman legions to the Germans in the Teutoberg Wald Battle. The Germans had tricked the Romans into the forest to slaughter them. Varus committed suicide. It was one of the worst defeats the Romans ever suffered and is one of the reasons the Romans stopped by the border of Germany and why the Romance languages stop there. For more information, see Teutoberg Wald.
