Germany resists imperial rule
 
  9 AD - Trouble in the provinces.
Tiberius puts down a revolt in Pannonia and Illyricum and returns to Rome victorious. Meanwhile, in Germany, a coalition of local tribes slaughters three Roman legions - one tenth of Rome's forces. Their General, Varus, commits suicide. As a result, Germania remains independent and is never included in the Roman Empire.
