Batavi

Batavi (bətāˈvĪ) [key], ancient Germanic tribe that settled (1st cent. B.C.) in the Rhine delta. Batavian regiments served under Rome, although this relationship was interrupted in A.D. 70 by the anti-Roman conspiracy of Civilis, one of their leaders. The tribal name was revived in 1795 to designate Holland, particularly the Batavian Republic.
