Alaric I, K Visigoths, and Athaulf, K. Visigoths were brothers-in-law.
was Alaric's sister Athaulf's wife, or was Alaric's wife(?) Athaulf's
sister? I'd guess the first, as alaric's sister would have balti
and I'm not aware that alaric ever actually married. But can anyone
confirm this inference, for me?
Very difficult tracing anything Visigoth that early I'm afraid, very
recorded if at all. I have long sought some mention of a direct ancestor
amongst Alaric's people, but have come up with little....
Hmmm.... Zosimus, Procopius, Jordanes, Isidore of Seville, and other
contemporary chroniclers of the Visigoths were writing fiction?
Actually, the part that is hard to document is the genealogical
connection between the Visigothic aristocracy and the ruling dynasties
of the Iberian successor states.
I once read a history of Spain that gave Pelayo, 1st K. Asturias, as son
of Favila, D. Cantabria, son of Chindasuinth, K. Visigoths. I suppose this
is 'creative' genealogy? In any case, I have it marked as 'uncertain' in
Oh, and the same history gave Roderic as a son of Theodofred, D. Cordova,
another (older?) son of Chindasuinth, making Roderic and Pelayo first
cousins. very neat! Too neat?
