Alaric II (458 - 507 Poitiers),[1] was the only son of Euric and Ragnahilde.[2] He succeeded his father as king of the Visigoths in Toulouse on December 28, 484, and established his capital at Aire-sur-l'Adour (Vicus Julii) in Aquitaine. His dominion included:

  • Hispania (except the northwestern corner);
  • Gallia Aquitania;
  • and the greater part of an as-yet undivided Gallia Narbonensis.[3]

The Balti were considered next in worth among Gothic fighters, and next in royal dignity, to the Amali. But it was Alaric the Visigoth, a Balth, who led his people to the sacking of Rome in 410 CE and founded a dynasty that would come to rule much of Roman Gaul for a century and all of Roman Hispania for longer, establishing a kingdom in the latter that would last until early in the eighth century.

The Balti dynasty of Visigothic kings reigned from 395 to 531.[4]
