About Walja

Walia (?-418), King of the Visigoths (415). He was elected King of the Visigoths in 415 after the death of Athaulf. He continued Athaulf's policy of supporting Roman power, giving them back the captive Galla Placidia, sister of the Emperor Honorius, in exchange for grain. He destroyed the Alans, drove the Vandals and Suevi into the northwest, then gave Rome control of the conquered provinces of Tarraconensis in Spain and Novempopulana and Narbonensis in Gaul. As a reward, in 419 the Emperor Honorius granted him the province of Aquitainia Secunda, which became the Visigothic kingdom of Toulouse, with its principal cities at Bordeaux, Toulouse and Narbonne. Wallia attempted an invasion of Africa, but his fleet was destroyed in a storm.

Wallia was koning van de Visigoten van 415 tot 418. Hij volgde Athaulf op als koning. Hij onderhandelde met keizer Honorius over de terugkeer van diens halfzuster Galla Placidia, koningin-weduwe van de Goten. Een schikking werd bereikt, waarin Wallia een grote lading graan ontving en in dienst van Honorius naar Spanje afreisde met een leger Visigoten ten einde de Germaanse invallers daar te bestrijden (Vandaalse Silingen onder Fredbal in Baetica in het zuiden, de Alanen onder Addac in Lusitania in het westen, de Sueven en de Vandaalse Asdingen onder Gunderic in Gallaecia in het noordwesten).

Wallia ging met zijn Visigoten zeer voortvarend te werk. De Silingen werden praktisch uitgemoord en de Alanen zodanig verslagen dat deze ophielden te bestaan als zelfstandig volk en aansluiting zochten bij de Asdingen. Keizer Honorius liet Wallia het karwei niet afmaken. Nu de Germaanse volken in Spanje dusdanig waren verzwakt wilden de Romeinen daar geen sterk Visigotisch leger hebben. De Visigoten kregen opdracht Spanje te verlaten en ontvingen als beloning een vestigingsgebied in Gallia (Aquitania Secunda en stukken van Narbonensis en Novempopulana). Wallia verwierf tevens voor de Visigoten de federale status als foederati van het rijk, waarmee Wallia stichter werd van het Visigotisch rijk rond Toulouse. Wallia stierf spoedig na het bereiken van het akkoord. In 418 werd Theoderik I tot zijn opvolger gekozen.

--------------------

Wallia or Valia (in Spanish Walia, in Portuguese Vália) was king of the Visigoths from 415 to 419, earning a reputation as a great warrior and prudent ruler. He was elected to the throne after Athaulf and then Sigeric were assassinated in 415.

The Visigoths (Latin: Visigothi, Wisigothi, Vesi, Visi, Wesi, or Wisi) were one of two main branches of the Goths, an East Germanic tribe; the Ostrogoths being the other. Together these tribes were among the barbarians who disturbed the late Roman Empire during the Migration Period.

The Visigoths first emerged as a distinct people during the fourth century, initially in the Balkans, where they participated in several wars with Rome. A Visigothic army under Alaric I eventually moved into Italy and famously sacked Rome in 410.

Eventually the Visigoths were settled in southern Gaul

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search

Wallia or Valia (in Spanish Walia, in Portuguese Vália) was king of the Visigoths from 415 to 419, earning a reputation as a great warrior and prudent ruler. He was elected to the throne after Athaulf and then Sigeric were assassinated in 415.

[edit] History

Early on, Wallia made peace with Emperor Honorius and accepted a treaty with the Roman Empire. He also returned Honorius' sister Galla Placidia to him. As gains from these arrangements, Wallia was granted Aquitaine in 417 as a region where the Visigoths would be based as official allies or foederati. He established his court in Toulouse, which became the Visigothic capital for the rest of the fifth century.

In 418 he honored the alliance by invading Hispania, where his army destroyed the Siling Vandals and so reduced the numbers of Alans living there that the survivors placed themselves under the rule of Gunderic, king of the Asding Vandals.

Some historical sources say that he was related to Alaric only by marriage. He was succeeded by Alaric's illegitimate son or son in law Theodoric. Wallia's daughter married Rechila, King of the Suevi, and was the mother of Ricimer and the mother in law of Gundowech, King of the Burgundians.

[edit] Legend

Wallia is assumed to have been the historical model for the legendary figure of Walter of Aquitaine.

Walia o Wallia. Rey de los visigodos entre los años 415 y 418. Sucedió a Ataúlfo tras la muerte de éste en 415 y la muerte de Sigérico asesinado a manos de sus seguidores. Estableció la capital del reino visigodo en Tolosa (la actual ciudad de Toulouse en Francia). Intenta establecerse en el norte de África pero una tempestad da al traste con sus espectativas y falto de víveres firmó la paz con el emperador romano Honorio y un tratado (foedus) con el que Walia se comprometía a entregar a Gala Placida (hermana de Honorio raptada por Alarico I y que había sido esposa de Ataúlfo) y a expulsar de la península Ibérica a los pueblos bárbaros que habían penetrado en el año 409. Por su parte el emperador Honorio entregaría 600.000 modios de trigo a los visigodos. En poco más de dos años los visigodos aniquilan a los vándalos silingos que estaban asentados en la Bética y practicamente a todos los alanos de la Lusitania. De los cuatro pueblos bárbaros ( vándalos asdingos, vándalos silingos, suevos y alanos) que se asentaron en la Península sólo quedaban dos, pero cuando parecía que también serían aplastados por Walia, Honorio decidió cambiar su plan y entregó a los visigodos la Aquitania para que se estableciesen allí.Con la muerte de Walia desaparece la dinastía baltinga que había comenzado con Alarico I. -------------------- Walia (?-418), King of the Visigoths (415).
