The Battle of the Lupia River was fought in 11 BC between a Roman force led by Nero Claudius Drusus and the Sicambri.[1] The Lupia River, now Lippe, flows westwards through the Ruhr Valley in North Rhine-Westphalia. Drusus defeated the Sicambri, and some of the defeated were moved to west of the Rhine River.
