About Geberich, king of the West Goths

http://www.historyfiles.co.uk/KingListsEurope/BarbarianVisigoths.htm

Additional information from The Oxford History of England: Roman Britain, Peter Salway.

The Germanic Visigoths were the Western Goths, separated from their Ostrogothic brethren by the divisions caused in the 270s. The kingdom was based north of the Danube, in the region of Bulgaria and Romania.

The Balti Goths (or Balthes, Baltungs, or Balthings) took their name from the Gothic word for bold. They were considered second in status only to the Amali Goths, but the latter were leading the Ostrogoths so the Balti were able to assume leadership in the west, apart from one brief attempt by the Amali to regain control.

270s: The Tervingi Goths, led by the Balti Goths, consolidate their realm between the Dniester and the Danube in modern western Ukraine, and become known to the Romans as the Visigoths.

Geberic / Geberich fl c.317 - 350 Son of Ilderic. Claimed as king of Ostrogoths & Visigoths.

c.330s: The names of kings of the Ostrogoths and Visigoths contains at least two crossovers during the late third and early fourth centuries, suggesting perhaps that the divisions are not quite so divided after all until the coming of the Huns. It is possible, given the approximate dates for Geberic, that he rules both groups until the rise of Ermanaric re-establishes the division between Visigoth and Ostrogoth.
