The Jutones were a barbarian tribe of humans that lived in what is now the Wasteland before the founding of the Empire.

About 20 years before the founding of the Empire, the Jutones lived in the forest of shadows. However, they were at war with the mighty Tuetogens. Marius, their chieftain, decided to move the tribe west.[1] (Those Jutones who did not leave became the Was Jutones of Nordland and Ostland.)[2] Marius led the Jutones in a series of wars against the resident Fimir, who were finally defeated in -10 IC.[1]

The Jutones determined not to become part of Sigmar's Empire, instead becoming he independent kingdom of Jutonsryk. However, they were conquered in 501 by Sigismund II and their land was absorbed into the existing province of Westerland.[1][2]
