Germani Cisrhenani is a Latin term which refers to that part of the tribal people known as Germani who lived to the west of the Rhine river. Cisrhenane, the English form of the word, means "this side of the Rhine". The opposite is transrhenane or "across the Rhine". The cisrhenane Germani are also sometimes referred to as "Left bank Germani".
