  • Notes 
    • became king upon his grandfather's death in 526
      As Athalaric was only ten years old, the regency was assumed by his mother, Amalasuntha . His mother attempted to provide for him an education in the Roman tradition, but the Gothic nobles pressured her to allow them to raise him as they saw fit. As a result, Athalaric drank heavily and indulged in vicious excesses, which ruined his constitution.
