Historically, it was actually common for legionnaire's to marry barbarian women. It's suspended that the majority did as the northern legionnaire's where surrounded by barbarian tribes most their life only natural they may fall in love with the ones there. They also would have taken barbarian slaves and a lot of times they fell in love with their slave and would marry them. This isn't just speculation btw, there is historically evidence for this.

Isn't it ironic though, these men spend their whole lives fighting barbarians to end up married to one.

Hey, you saw it! Do you liked? I hope so :D
However, I wrote you on FB to warn you.
I think it's an intense scene as the first illustration. But here I was inspired by a famous and romantic painting!
