Germania or Germany- 9 CE -- Though the reign of Augustus was generally marked by military triumph and successes, Augustus did fail to expand the Roman empire beyond the natural borders established in the North. In particular, at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, Augustus was soundly defeated. The Romans lost about 20,000 troops or about three legions trying to gain influence in Germania.
