ID : 83084   
« back to classes page
The Visigoths were one of two main branches of the Goths, an East Germanic tribe, the Ostrogoths being the other. A Visigothic army under Alaric I moved into Italy and famously sacked Rome in 410. Eventually the Visigoths were settled in southern Gaul as foederati of the Romans, but soon fell out with their hosts and established their own kingdom with its capital at Toulouse. They extended their authority into Hispania, displacing the Vandals and Alans. Their rule in Gaul was cut short in 507. Thereafter the only territory north of the Pyrenees the Visigoths held was Septimania. Their kingdom was limited to Hispania, which came under the control of their small governing elite, at the expense of the Byzantine province of Spania and the Suebic Kingdom of Galicia. Part II is a continuation of the Visigoth story from the perspective of the Visigoths themselves. We continue the connection between New Mexican families and the Visigoths. A film will be shown that will trace the Visigoth history and its migration to the Iberian Peninsula.
