The Ostrogothic king Theodoric the Great, after years of struggle with other Gothic groups and Eastern Roman emperor Zeno in the Balkans, set out in 488 with his tribe to the west. There he defeated King Odoaecer and became ruler of Italy, where he founded the Ostrogothic kingdom and immediately became involved in the complicated relations between individual barbarian rulers of Western Europe.

With the help of the "laws of the barbarians" and the official Ostrogothic correspondence written by Cassiodorus Senator we will focus on the various marriages organized by Theodoricc and how these marriages and other Theodoric's steps helped him to create his position among the other barbarian rulers.

How Pilgrims Lost Their Way. A Contribution to the Long-standing Scientific Discussion Considering a Motive of the Diversion of the Fourth Crusade
Weinzettl, Štěpán ; Drška, Václav (advisor) ; Picková, Dana (referee)
1 Abstract This thesis offers a contribution to a long-standing historical debate concerning the deviation of the Fourth Crusade. It reflects both the main primary sources - especially two old-French narrative sources, the chronicles of Geoffroy Villehardouin and Robert of Clari - and key secondary literature. A special attention is paid to The Fourth Crusade written by two american scholars - Donald Queller and Thomas Madden. This book has gained a considerable prestige and become a crucial part of the Fourth Crusade's bibliography. This study owes much to its factual account but argues against its conclusions. Furthermore it works on the assumption that in the case where a deadlock was achieved after two centuries of historical debate, only an interdisciplinary collaboration is able to break it. Since the historical controversy lies in a "conspiracy theory" problem, this thesis also reflects the most modern findings on the epistemological value of these theories made by the philosophers. From this stance it tries to stir up the historical debate with new impulses.
