Expert Answer:

Marianne and Germania were the female allegories of France and Germany. 
Their importance as female allegories were that they stood as personifications of the 'Republic' and 'Liberty'. They were portrayed as the symbol of nationalism as they gave the abstract idea of a nation in a concrete form. They established a sense of nationality in the citizens of these countries.
