Theodosius was succeeded in 395 by ineffective emperors in both East and West, who did not  entirely honor his agreements with the Visigoths. In that year, the activist Alaric was elected  Visigothic king, and decided to migrate further into Europe and Italy in search of food and  pasture land. Six years later, a mostly Vandal-Burgundian army led by Rhadagaesius crossed the  Danube into the northern Alps. In both cases the impetus was a Hunnic return to Southeastern  Europe, pushing all before them. Pandemonium ensued in Roman lands.  In 401, Stilicho, the Frankish-Roman military leader, went to subdue Rhadagaesius, allowing  Alaric to bring his tribe into northern Italy and engage in limited pillaging. Stilicho defeated  Rhadagaesius' forces, however, incorporating them into his army, which pushed Alaric back  across the Italian Alps, where he decided to bide his time. Responding to continuing Hunnic

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
