Historical background

Nerviens (now Belgium)

(Second - first century BC)

Nerviens belong to the great Belgian group. Their territory was vast and extended on the north of the present Belgium, between Scheldt and Sambre. They had for neighbors Menapii the Eburones, the Remi, the Bellovaci the Viromanduens and Atrébates. They had several clients whose peoples Ceutrons and Lévaques. In 57 before J. C-. They furnished a contingent of fifty thousand men in the Belgian coalition, led by the Bellovaci. Caesar described as "the most ferocious of the Belgians". They were defeated at the Battle of the Sambre and decimated. Only five hundred warriors have survived on the sixty thousand incurred. They submitted and received the protection of the Romans, but that does not stop in 54 before J. C-. , To join the rebellion of Ambiorix, chief EBURON who rebelled against Caesar besieged Quintus Cicero, who was finally cleared by the Chief. They are preparing for war when Caesar led his troops on their territory and crashed into 53 before J. C-. Nevertheless, they still furnished a contingent of five thousand men to rescue besieged in Alesia Vercingetorix. Caesar (BG. II, 4, 15-17, 19, 23, 28, 29, 32, V, 24, 38, 39, 41, 42, 45, 46, 48, 56, 58, VI, 2, 3, 29; VII 75). Strabo (G. IV, 3, 4).
