Barbarian Season 2 Story
The story takes place during the Roman occupation in the latter AD 9. The Germanic tribes are oppressed by the empire’s heavy taxes and demands and felt it as a burden on themselves. Arminius is a tribe who was given away as a hostage when he was a child by his father Segimer. His father wanted to confirm peace between his tribe and Rome. He returns and becomes the new chief and tries to reunite the tribe. In midst of those events, disaster, and betrayal his adopted son commits suicide.
The season starts with leader Segimer bristles when the Empire increased the strain, demands, and taxes, and the secret lovers Thusnelda and Folkwin deal Rome a symbolic blow. In the second episode, there is a theft that provokes a crisis. It, further, reunited Arminius, a Roman Officer, with his father Segimer and his childhood friends called Thusnelda and Folkwin, who are also lovers. Varus ordered troops to hunt down and kill Folkwin and Arminius commanded the troop.
His actions put his family and also the entire village in very serious danger. Thusnelda and Folkwin rally a rival tribe while Arminius is pleased with his new role and embraces it with Cherusci but his shift of allegiances runs much deeper than Varus can not even imagine. Arminius and Thusnelda organize a fake political marriage to reunite the Germanic tribes. Everyone thinks that Folkwin is dead. However, she has been actually enslaved and no one knows about it. Arminius, then, leads Varus and the other three Roman legions into the Teutoburg Forest- and into history. There, Thusnelda makes a sacrifice in order to preserve the alliance.
