In Arminius's case, the chief was the chief of the Germanic Cherusci tribe. Captured as a captive, he was nurtured and educated in the Roman military tradition and became a renowned fighter.
Going against the grain of society's teachings, he rallied the Germanic tribes to revolt against their Roman occupiers utilizing his military expertise and insight into Roman strategy.
No one knows for sure what inspired Arminius to launch the liberation war. However, it is safe to suppose that while being trained to serve the Roman Empire, he always remembered where he came from and secretly yearned for the independence of the people to whom he was kin.
Arminius' victory at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest was a watershed moment that is still felt today. This withdrawal from conquered territory may have been the first step toward the end of the Roman Empire's aggressive territorial expansion.
