'''Saint Agricius''' (ca. 260 – ca. 329, 333 or 335) was Bishop of Trier in the 4th century. A local 9th century tradition states that he had been Patriarch of Antioch, and that he was moved to the See of Trier by Pope Silvester I at the request of the Empress Helena (Helena of Constantinople). He was present at the Council of Arles in 314, and signed the acts immediately after the presiding bishop of that diocese. This act meant that, at least in the fourth century, Trier laid claim to the primacy of Gaul and Germany, a claim his successor Saint Maximin (Maximin of Trier) reinforced. He is next found in the household of the young Duke of Feria, whose mother was Lady Anne Dormer. With him or in his service he lived in Flanders, Spain, Milan, Naples, and Rome for some twenty years, until the Duke died in 1607, on the point of setting out for a diplomatic mission to Germany, on which Fitzherbert was to have accompanied him. It was during this period that he was charged in 1598 by Squire with having tempted him to murder Queen Elizabeth (Elizabeth I of England); in 1595 a charge of contradictory implication had been preferred against him to the Spanish Government, viz. that he was an agent of Elizabeth. Both charges led to the enhancement of his reputation. A series of 200 letters from the Duke to him is preserved in the archives of the Archdiocese of Westminster. As was common with sons of the ''kazoku'' aristocracy, he served for a session in the House of Peers (House of Peers (Japan)) in the Japanese Diet (Diet of Japan) in 1910, while pursuing his military education. He graduated from the 23rd class of the Army War College (Army War College (Japan)) in 1911. He was an outstanding student, and was awarded the Emperor's Sword on graduation. In 1913, he went to Germany for further studies, and from there went on to Great Britain. In 2005, Kristiansen appeared in a self-funded series of live action shorts (Short subject) called "Right on Top". The series was transmitted on the Nickelodeon Southeast Asia (Nickelodeon (TV channel)#Southeast Asia) feed. One season of "Art Mad", the show's long form, has been purchased for broadcast by German (Germany) corporation Faber-Castell for transmission in Indonesia. Anglo-Burmans represent a very diverse heritage, their Asian side primarily representing Burman blood, but also Karen (Karen people), Shan (Shan people) and Mon (Mon people) as well as other smaller Burmese ethnic groups (Chin (Chin people), Kachin (Jingpo people), Arakanese (Rakhine people) for example). The European element included, aside from the British, other European influence, chiefly Greek (Greece), Dutch (Netherlands), Scandinavian, Irish (Ireland) (who left their country when the Great Irish Famine), German (Germany), Austrian, French (France), Portuguese (Portugal), Italian (Italy) and Russian. In addition, Iraqi (Assyrian Chaldean Christian), Armenian, Syrian, Phoenician, Egyptian and Anglo-Indian blood was also represented among Anglo-Burmans. By the 1920s, the Anglo-Burman community was a distinct ethnic group in Burma. In 1935, colonial Burma was plagued with riots due to the country having been swallowed into British India. In response, in 1937, as Burma separated officially from British India and formed a separate crown colony, Anglo-Burmans were officially recognised as an ethnic group under the Government of Burma Act. Having European blood, Anglo-Burmans were a privileged class, and became one of the dominant ethnic groups in Burmese life. They began assimilating to European customs, in particular British. Most Anglo-Burmans (unlike Anglo-Indians and the Burgher people in Sri Lanka) were able to trace at least a grandparent, if not a parent, originating from outside of Burma's borders. As such, the connection with the West was strong, and many Anglo-Burmans did not settle down as a truly indigenous ethnic group. Of course, some Anglo-Burmans did, and most of the community felt Burma was their own country, with no wish to "repatriate" to their European homeland. In fact, after Independence, when the Anglo-Burman Union carried out research among the community to gauge the feeling of its people with regard to nationality, it was discovered that around 60% intended to remain in Burma and take Burmese Citizenship (see John Clement Koop- The Eurasian Population in Burma) with the remaining 40% split between staying in Burma or leaving for Australia or the UK. Along with the British settlers, Anglo-Indians also came into Burma during colonial times to work on the railways and customs departments and intermarriage between the two groups (Anglo-Indian and Anglo-Burmese) was frequent, especially in Rangoon (Yangon) as both communities were innately drawn to one another. Community clubs were a mainstay of life during British rule, with most attending what was commonly called the 'Anglo-Indian Domiciled European Club'. '''''Hitler's SS: Portrait in Evil''''' is a 1985 TV film about two German (Germany) brothers, Helmut and Karl Hoffmann, and the paths they take during the Nazi era of Germany (Nazi Germany).

Various Germanic tribes have occupied what is now northern Germany and southern Scandinavia since classical antiquity. A region named Germania was documented (Germania (book)) by the Romans (Ancient Rome) before AD 100. During the Migration Period that coincided with the decline of the Roman Empire, the Germanic tribes expanded southward and established kingdoms throughout much of Europe. Beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire. The Latin name ''Sacrum Imperium'' (Holy Empire) is documented as far back as 1157. The Latin name ''Sacrum Romanum Imperium'' (Holy Roman Empire) was first documented in 1254. The full name "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation" (''Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation'') dates back to the 15th century. During the 16th century, northern German regions became the centre of the Protestant Reformation. The rise of Pan-Germanism inside the German Confederation, which had been occupied by France (French period) during the Napoleonic Wars, resulted in the unification of most of the German states (unification of Germany) in 1871 into the Prussian-dominated German Empire. As a result of the military defeat in World War I, and the German Revolution of 1918–1919, the Empire was replaced by the parliamentary Weimar Republic. The establishment (Machtergreifung) of the Third Reich, or Nazi Regime (Nazi Germany), in 1933 eventually led to World War II and the Holocaust. In 1945, the remnants (Flensburg government) of the Nazi regime surrendered (Surrender of Germany) to the Allied Powers (Allies of World War II). Over the next few years, Germany lost more of its territory (Former eastern territories of Germany) and was divided by the victors into Allied occupation zones (Allied-occupied Germany), and evolved into two states, East Germany and West Germany. On 3 October 1990 (German Unity Day), the country was reunified (German reunification), regaining full sovereignty about six months later.
