About .... of the Visigoths


a) [ daughter. Her parentage and marriage are indicated by Wolfram who says that Walia was succeeded by “Theoderid, son or rather son-in-law of Alaric I”[12]. As, in another passage, Wolfram says that nothing is known about the earlier life of Theoderic[13], the basis for the latter being Alaric’s son is unknown. Wolfram quotes no primary source which corroborated his assertion that Theoderic was Alaric’s son-in-law. He cites Olympiodorus Thebæus in a footnote, but the passage in question makes no mention of any relationship between Theoderic and Alaric[14].

m THEODERIC, son of --- (-killed in battle near Troyes 451). He was elected to succeed in 418 on the death of King Walia as THEODERIC I King of the Visigoths.]

This individual was proposed by Charles Cawley, maintainer of the FMG Medlands "prosopographic collection of data". The lack of information means that he hasn't found any primary source information than what is on the website.

No birth dates are given, but her father, Alaric I, ruled from 395 to late 410, when he died. In 396 and 397, he was campaigning in Greece (the dates that he destroyed Attica), and probably was not encumbered with a family as yet. In 401, he entered Italiae province, and on Easter Sunday 402 engaged in a battle with Stilicho during which, according to English Wikipedia, his wife was captured. If the daughter came from this wife, then the girl must have been born well before 400. By 403, he was out of Italiae.

In the summer of 408, his entry into the civil war breaking out in Italiae likely served as a practical limit to his ability to create children. By late 410, after sacking Rome, he was dead.

So possible dates of birth could be before 400, and 404-409 (when he wasn't in the midst of campaigns in Italy, date shifted one year to account for being carried to term).
