Eutarico Cillica successore di Teoderico
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Eutharic Cillica became the heir of the Ostrogothic Kingdom by marrying Theoderic the Great’s daughter, Amalasuintha. His ancestry is obscure and historians usually believe that he was chosen because of his Amal forefathers and his ties with the Visigoths. A closer examination of his name and of contemporary sources, however, shows that he probably had an ancestor who lacked Gothic parentage and that he was chosen not in spite of his dubious origins, but due to them, since Theoderic needed a man who would be king only in name, a consors regni who would leave all real power to his daughter Amalasuintha and, in due course, to his grandson, Athalaric.
