Hoger (Hagar) was born in Portus (present-day Pforzheim in Baden) around 300 AD. His father was Thuras (Thor, born c. 270 AD), and his grandfather was Herman (Irmin, born c. 240 AD). Herman was the king of the Hermunduri and lived in the Gommern area, near Magdeburg. After burying his father (Sceaf son of Weden, born c. 210 AD), who had died in battle against marauding Huns, Herman led his people to Baden around 260 AD, driving the Vangiones, Nemetae and Tribuci across the Rhine. He drove the Romans out of Portus (Pforzheim) and made it his residence. After Herman's death, his sons Jutho and Thuras divided his territories; Jutho ruled in the south, Thuras in the north. Thuras was suceeded by his son Hoger. Around 325 AD, the Alamanni attacked the Hermunduri in Baden and took over their territory. Most of the Hermanduri renamed themselves the Juthungi, and joined the Alamanni confederation. But the Hermanduri in the north did not wish to join. Hoger renamed them the Thuringi and led them back to central Germany, where they settled around Scithingi (Burgscheidungen). Hoger conquered the local Anglii (whose northern branch later joined the Saxons and Jutes in Britain) and Warnii tribes and started the Thuringian confederation, of which he was the first king. Hoger married an unknown Thuringi woman, who gave him a son named Erpas (c. 330 AD). Hoger died around 360 AD, and was succeeded by his son Erpas as King of Thuringia. The early kings of Thuringia were called the Scithings, from their ancestor Sceaf, son of Weden Frithuwald's son and twin brother to Sciold. Sceaf was a prince of the Anglii from Haithabu (Flensburg), who came to Gommern around 230 and married the daughter of the king of the Hermanduri, starting a new dynasty ancestral to Hoger. Among the descendants of Hoger are Erpas, Meerwig I, Weldalf, Meerwig II, Basin II, Bertacar, Fisud, Gundebald, Chamard, Radulf, and Heden. Clovis was a descendant of Hoger through his mother Basina, daughter of Basin I, who was the son of Weldalf and brother to Meerwig II.

Om Hoger, King of the Thüringians (Norsk)

Hoger, konge av Thüringen ca 325 til 360

Hoger (Hagar) ble født i Portus (dagens Pforzheim i Baden) rundt 300 Hans far var Thuras (Thor, født ca. 270 , og hans bestefar var Herman (Irmin, født ca. 240

Hoger tok over etter faren Thor Rundt 325 angrep alamannerne i Baden og tok over deres territorium. De fleste av Hermanduri endret navnet til Juthungi og ble medlem alamannernes statsforbund. Men Hermanduri i Nord ønsker ikke å delta. Hoger døpte dem til Thuringi og ledet dem tilbake til sentrale Tyskland, hvor de bosatte seg rundt Scithingi (i dag Burgscheidungen).

Hoger erobret den lokale Anglii (som nordlige grenen ble senere sakserne og jyder i Storbritannia) og Warnii stammer og dannet et Thüringer forbund, og ble den første kongen av Thüringen. Hoger giftet seg med en ukjent Thuringi kvinne, som ga ham en sønn kalt Erpas (f. 330). Hoger døde rundt 360 og ble etterfulgt av sin sønn Erpas som konge Thüringen.
