Germanic Mythology refers to all of the myths, legends, fantastical stories and tales which primarily originate from Northern Europe. Saxons, Goths, and Norsemen would all be considered Germanic peoples in the modern world and each of these cultures, as well as many others, have contributed to Germanic Mythological Lore in some way or another. Now you may think that you don't know the slightest thing about Germanic Mythology if you're not a Mythology buff, but if you've ever heard of the likes of Odin the Allfather or Thor the Thunderer then you may be more familiar with Germanic Mythology than you may have originally thought.
