It is generally assumed that the great Germanic legendary heroes Dietrich von Bern and
the Nibelungen have their counterparts in history: Theodoric the Great and the
Burgundians of Late Antiquity.
Unfortunately, the stories told about these great heroes have no relation whatsoever
to the known historical facts. In addition, the heroes might be identificated in
a radically different way.
