The Frankish tribes had geographic good fortune. They
had been established in Belgium as Roman allies since the middle of the 4th Century.
Unlike the other Barbarian groups that started fresh in a new land, the Franks merely
expanded in many small scale advances. The Franks were cautious and their progress was
slow and led by undistinguished leaders. None would have known that the Franks would
eventually make up the most important Germanic realm--a realm that would eventually be
led by great King Clovis to defeat even the Visigoths in 507AD.
