The Goths and the Huns

Recommended Posts

Ave,

In researching a novel set in the Later Roman Empire, I just finished "The Huns" by H.J. Kim.
In his book he states that after the Gothic war the Greuthung who had not surrendered to the Huns occupied Wallachia.  However, they were a vassal state to the Huns.

Then it must mean that the Terving were divided into the northern half in the Hauha-land and the southern in Lower Moesia.

I had never heard of the Greuthung north of the Danube being vassals, but it makes sense.  Any comments?

Thank you in advance,

Tom

I did a review of Kim's book for UNRV.

The majority of the Greuthungi who had remained north of the Danube under Athanaric after the Hunnic war probably remained there when Athanaric sought sanctuary in Constantinople in 381.

It is probably these warriors who were led by Valamer, Theodemer and Widimer as allies of the Huns at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains in 451
