(c.370-410) King of the Visigoths, born on an island in the Danube; died Cosenza, Italy. He was a general of the Gothic irregulars under the Roman Emperor Theodosius, and at death of the latter was elected king. In 396 he invaded Greece, and was given the prefecture of Illyricum. He overran Italy, 400, but was forced by Stilicho to retire to IIIyricum, 403. On his second invasion, he sacked Rome, despite the entreaties of Innocent I, but treated the churches and inhabitants with respect. He married Galla Placida at Narbo, 417, became master of Italy, and was about to invade Africa when he died.
