History buffs - what was the most impactful migration of peoples
Setting aside the migration to the Americas.

I remember reading an old Encyclopedia Britannica article many years ago that started something like: "at the beginning of the common era there were no Franks in France, no Angles in England, no Rus in Russia, etc. I think this applies for Huns in Hungary, Turks in Turkey, etc.

So, what was the biggest one or at least the one that had the most impact going forward.

Mongolians all over Asia if we are counting conquests.

The Moors into Spain and Western Europe

The Danes into England.

Because I think one would probably win by a landslide because of how big it was, the impact it had and it's relative recency.

Mongols to the islands of Japan.

quote:

As a result of this war, there was a growing recognition in China that the Japanese were brave and violent, and the invasion of Japan was futile. In the era of the Ming Dynasty, invasion into Japan was discussed three times, but it was never carried out considering the result of this war.[53][54][55]

Yeah. I think that is a pretty big one. But isn't it kind of obscured in the pre-history/history era where not all that much is known about it.

I thought about the settling of Oceania too, and that one I think is pretty much pre-history so I'm not sure what exactly we know about how it occurred.

Yes. Conquests definitely count. A lot of the migrations have some form or another of conquest in them.

The Mongolian invasions were definitely huge and successful. I don't know enough about them to know how lasting they were - did the Mongols and their culture stay entrenched more or less permanently? I know Ghengis Khan's DNA supposedly is present in a large number of people alive today in certain areas, but I just don't know if their "civilization" made lasting impressions or not.

The Danes in England are a really interesting case. At one time they controlled a large area of it (Danelaw) and there are still plenty of words/place-names, etc which show their impact. Then when the Saxons finally got the upper hand, the Normans who started out as part of the same northern invations (I don't know if they were Danes, Norse or what) took over.

I think the Moors pretty much lost Spain.
