Biography

He was the most powerful of the three "judges" leading the three groups of Visigoths at the end of their time in Dacia. He fiercely persecuted the Christians in Dacia (364-376). Because of that he engaged in a civil war against his rival "judge" Fritigern. Eventually he was defeated by the Huns after which he fled to the Transylvanian mountains. In 381 he was received in Constantinople by the roman emperor Theodosius I with royal honours. However, he died two weeks later. Meaning of Athanaric: "powerful ruler". -------------------- Wikipedia
