Carpathian Germans

Carpathian Germans (German: Karpatendeutsche, Mantaken, Hungarian: Felvidéki németek, Slovak: Karpatskí Nemci) are a group of ethnic Germans living on the territory of present-day Slovakia (also called Slovak Germans (Slowakeideutsche) or Zips Germans) and in the adjacent Eastern Carpathians, i.e. Carpathian Ruthenia in Ukraine.

The term was coined by the historian Raimund Friedrich Kaindl (1866-1930), then generally referring to the German-speaking population in the Cisleithanian (Austrian) crown lands of Galicia and Bukovina, as well as in the Hungarian half of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in the northwest Maramureș region of Romania.
