Alaric I, King of the Visigoths (395-410)

  • Born: Abt 370, Peuce Island, Danube delta
  • Died: 420, Cosenza in the Balkans

   General Notes:

the first Germanic leader to take the city of Rome.

He was well born, his father kindred to the Balti, considered next in worth among Gothic fighters to the Amali. He was a Goth and belonged to the western branch, called the Visigoths. The Visigoths at the time of his birth dwelt in what is today Bulgaria, having fled beyond the wide estuary marshes of the Danube to its southern shore so as not to be followed by their foe from the steppe, the Huns.
