Ave Civitas,Still working on my novel, The Bandit King (All about Alaric). I am a little confused about Gildo and the reaches of his command.He was count of Africa. Was that a military district? The title count suggests it was.If so, how far did the military district extend?Did it include Africa Procunsularis, Mauretania Caesariensis, Mauretania Sitifensis, Numidia Militiana, Numidia Cirtensis and Tripolitania?If it did, and if he wanted to mobilize the whole army (When Stilicho declared war against him) would he need to enlist the Vicarius of Africa? The counsuls and praefects of Africa? Surely the Praetorian Praefect of Italy would tell the Vicar of Africa, "No." How could he supply his troops?It seems like such a daunting task, getting everyone on the same side of the line.Any information and sources (in English, I am handicapped that way) are appreciated.Again, thanks in advance.Tom
