The New Student's Reference Work/Alemanni
Alemanni (ä′lā-măn′nē) (meaning “all men”), a union of several tribes, who lived in the heart of Germany. They were attacked at different times in their history by nine Roman generals or emperors. They were defeated time and again, but never conquered. They were at last united with the Suevi into the dukedom of Alemannia, and thereafter their history is included in the history of Germany.
