Negotiations with Honorius broke down, and Alaric deposed Attalus in the summer of 410, and besieged Rome for the third time.
Allies within the capital opened the gates for him on August24, and for three days his troops sacked the city.
In 394 he led a Gothic force of 20,000 that helped the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius defeat the Frankish usurper Arbogast at the Battle of Frigidus.
Despite sacrificing around 10,000 of his men, Alaric received little recognition from the Emperor.
As a response, the Eastern emperor Flavius Arcadius appointed Alaric magister militum ("master of the soldiers") in Illyricum.
In 401 Alaric invaded Italy, but he was defeated by Stilicho at Pollentia (modern Pollenza) on April6, 402.
Disappointed, he left the army and was elected reiks of the Visigoths in 395, and marched toward Constantinople until he was diverted by Roman forces.
Honorius, however, refused to appoint Alaric as the commander of the Western Roman Army, and in 409 the Visigoths again surrounded Rome.
the girl was very receptive, very active, and we did fuck for several hours...
good thing it was a Friday night and I had no classes the next day. I still shake my head that goth was not what I thought it was.
Then when the party was breaking up and people were headed for home, she asked the Goth to stay behind. We all had a few drinks, so I was feeling more kindly towards people (as I always do after a couple of drinks).
The Goth girl and I apologized to each other, and my gf told us to kiss and hug, which we did, but man, there were sparks which I did not expect.
