Irminsul was a pagan symbol of the Saxons, believed to be a great pillar in Northern Saxony, where people would gather from all over the land, to trade with each other, to exchange ideas, to practice their religious rights, etc. a sacred ground. With the coming of christianity, all these symbols were brought down, burned, destroyed, and it was Charlemagne himself who brought in terror, destruction, death and grief to these people and Irminsul was cut down and burned. It is believed that Irminsul was a great tree, a very old tree, this is why i have made a great tree in this drawing, because in these times all pagan peoples all over Europe used to worship trees, especially Oak trees and Birch trees and to the northern peoples the Oak was the most sacred of them all. Because trees were so important and sacred, the Christians burned and cut down thousands of forests because those were used by the pagans as an hideout.
