The Quadi was a smaller Germanic tribe about which little definitive information
is known. They emerged as an element in the earlier migrations southward
that took place near the beginning of the 1st century CE, alongside the
more numerous Marcomanni, who they were probably closely related to.
They were settled in what is now Moravia and western Slovakia from
roughly 40 CE onward. Their frontiers for the next 350 years or more
were the Marcomanni to the west, proto-Slavic tribes to the north,
Sarmatian Iazgyians[?] and (later) Asding Vandals to the east, and the
Roman Empire to the south.
