Kings of the Visigoths

The Germanic Goths lived in northern Poland AD 100 and it is possible that they originated from Scandinavia. Their migrations during the second century AD brought them to present day Romania and Ukraine. When the Huns conquered the Gothic territories at the end of the fourth century some of the Goths (soon to be called Visigoths) took refuge inside the Roman Empire, which gave them the status of foederati (allies). Early leaders were Athanaric (Athanreiks) 363-381 and Fritigern (Frithugairns) 369-380. The Goths were however troublesome allies to the Romans and they plundered Roman territory several times. They broke the peace with Rome 395 and began a migration, lead by Alaric (Alhareiks), which would result in the sacking of Rome 410 until they again were given the status as foederati and settled in Aquitaine in southern France 418. The Visigoths established a kingdom there, which during the fifth century would expand so it eventually covered the Iberian peninsula. Aquitaine was lost to the Franks 507 and the Arab conquest of the Iberian peninsula began 711 whereby the Visigothic kingdom ceased to exist.
