Facts: Alaric was born on 360 A.D. and died 411 A.D. He was the first king of the Visigoths (a powerful nation.) Alaric conquered many territories and barely made it out alive in some other ones. Here are some of the many facts of Alaric.
During the Middle Ages there was a tribe called the Goths which came for the shores of the Baltic Sea. They had come to Rome because they had a conspiracy against the roman ruler, Valens. Valens later found out and tried to punish them. But instead they decided to meet each other on boat and make a treaty of peace.
For a while the Goths were at war with another group called the Huns . The Goths lived in the mountains and the Huns lived in the plains so they constantly battled each other in the mountains/plains.
The Goths were eventually tired of fighting the Huns and asked Valens if they could move into a part of Rome. Valens said yes as long as they were fair/true to Rome. They did as said the became a very powerful nation and Goths also chose a king... Alaric.
After they decided Alaric to be king in 394 he had a dream he was the Emperor of Rome. He thought the dream meant he could actually become Emperor so he called his army and decided to attack. He got his dream and became Emperor.
Alaric was not a good leader. He destroyed buildings, homes, towns, etc. While destroying things he took the riches to keep for himself. He and his army then left with all the riches to conquer Sicily.On his way there he died and was buried in the river Busento.
