Riotham ÀP DEROCH Prince of the Dumnonii in Brittany (c.460)

  • Born: Abt 435

   General Notes:

He sent 12,000 Breton troops to support Emperor Anthemius of the Romans against the invading Visigoths under Euric in 469. However, the Roman forces let him down completely and arrived at the ensuing battle too late to prevent the total annihilation of the Breton army at the hands King Euric of the Visigoths.

He received a letter from Sidonius Apollinaris, a Roman Prefect and Bishop of Clermont, written around 470, asking Riothamus for justice for "an obscure and humble person," who has had his slaves enticed away, by a group of armed Bretons, for whom the slave-owner was little match in 470.
