Quick Reference

(d. 601),

King of the Visigoths. He was associated with his father in governing the country (most of Spain) from 573 and succeeded him in 586. In 587 he abandoned Arianism and became a Catholic. This step helped to pacify the country, since the Catholic clergy and nobles were more powerful than the Arian Visigoths.
