The Saxons were a grouping of ancient Germanic tribes. They've had historic conflict with the Frankish tribes, were used by the Romans to settle the Isle of Briton and lend their name to the modern term, Anglo-Saxon. Conquered by Charlemagne during the Saxon Wars (772-804), Saxony became a duchy in the Frankish kingdom. The one-time duchy of Saxony (or the Germanic Old-Saxony) is currently occupied by the German states of Lower Saxony, Westphalia and Saxony-Anhalt.
