 History of Austria
The Marcomanni, who came originally from the upper Main valley in present-day northern Bavaria or from the Elbe valley in present-day Saxony, moved into Bohemia in the year 6 BC, pushing out a Celtic people known as the Boii, who were settled about the Hercynian forest in southern Bohemia, in present-day Czechoslavakia (Todd 31, 58-59).
The primary decision-making body of the tribe was the king's retinue, made up of the leading warriors of the tribe, who were bound to the king by oaths of loyalty, proved themselves to the king on the field of battle, and who shared in the rewards of battle.
During the early phase of this period, the Marcomanni and Quadi, another Germanic tribe, broke through into northern Italy, destroying the town of Opitergium (present-day Oderzo, northeast of Venice), and laying siege to the important trade city of Aquileia at the head of the Adriatic.

 Archaeological Prospection 2001 - Carnuntum
Carnuntum first appears in Roman history during the reign of Emperor Augustus (27 B.C. - 14 A.D.) in 6 A.D. when a Roman army under the command of Tiberius established a winter camp at Carnuntum during the military campaign against the Germanic tribe of the Marcomanni, as the Roman historian Velleius Paterculus reports.
The peaceful development of the settlement was suddenly interrupted in the sixties of the 2nd century A.D., when the Germanic tribes of the Marcomanni and Quadi crossed the river Danube and advanced to northern Italy, where Aquileia was besieged and Opitergium destroyed.
In contrast to the predominant opinion in former research there is no unequivocal archaeological proof of repeated destructions by the Marcomanni and Quadi at Carnuntum.

The Marcomanni (Marcomani), were a Germanic tribe that settled in the Main River valley soon after 100 BC.
For many decades thereafter, the Marcomanni and their neighbours the Quadi were clients of Rome, receiving frequent subsidies.
This incongruous position did little harm in times of general security and prosperity, but when either of these were threatened, the local population might denounce Christians, a governor might be forced to act, and the law, as the central authority saw it, must then run its course.
