Honorius Flavius

Honorius, Flavius (384-423), succeeded his father Theodosius as Emperor of the West, while the eastern half of the empire fell to the share of his brother Arcadius. The attacks of the northern races were at first warded off by Stilicho (q.v.), but after his murder in 408 Rome was besieged and taken by the Visigoth Alaric (410). During the remainder of the reign there were frequent and manifold signs of the disruption which was soon to culminate in the Ostrogothic conquest.
