Under Carolingian rule, the Saxons were reduced to a tributary status.
There is evidence that the Saxons, as well as Slavic tributaries like the Abodrites and the Wends, often provided troops to their Carolingian overlords.
The dukes of Saxony became kings (Henry I, the Fowler, 919) and later the first Emperors (Henry's son, Otto I, the Great) of Germany during the 10th century, but lost this Position in 1024.

Second, in reviewing the previous German attempts to conquer the Slavs along the Elbe, he concludes that by 1147 the Abodrites had only the alternatives of being conquered--and thereby being submerged politically and culturally--or becoming a Christian state within the Church and the Empire.
In choosing Christianization, the Abodrite leaders made possible an end to the ancient hostilities between German and Slav in Mecklenburg and Pomerania.

Either Horik was continuing his policy of cooperation with Frankish rulers against vikings operating from Frisia, or he felt a need to oblige Louis the German after his own attack up the Elbe and his defeat at the hands of the Saxons.
The Abodrites were a valuable source of income to Godfred when Charlemagne wanted them as allies against the Saxons, and Danish influence in Saxony was also important; Saxon magnates sought shelter in Denmark.

That'd be, primarily, the Frisians, Saxons, Bructeri, Abodrites, Liutizes, Veleti, and, if possible, the Pomeranians.
If that's too much, I'll settle for just the Frisians, Saxons, and Abodrites...
