The invasions by the Germanic peoples made western part of the Roman Empire crumble and it eventually fell under the weight of these invasions. This part of the empire lost its political cohesion. There was infighting and a string of usurpers. The Germanic peoples eventually took over all the lands of the western part of the Roman Empire except for Italy. These invasions were more than just military actions. They were also migrations of whole peoples.

The Vandals, Sueves, Alans (who were an Iranian-speaking people) and Burgundians from central Europe invaded Gaul (France) in 406. The Alemanni from southern Germany took advantage of this to seize Lorraine (in northeastern Gaul) and Switzerland. The Visigoths and the Franks, who had been allowed to settle in the Roman Empire, also took over Roman territories. The Angels, Saxons and Jutes from northern Germany and the Frisians from northern Holland migrated to Britannia in waves and took it over.

The Germanic peoples eventually formed their own kingdoms: The Vandals in Northwestern Africa, the Visigoths in Spain, and the Burgundians in Burgundy and Savoy, in eastern Gaul. The Alans moved to Africa with the Vandals. The Sueves were under the kingdom of the Visigoths. The Franks took over northern and central Gaul and eventually took over the whole of Gaul.
