Ricimer 2, pp. 942–4. 64 As imperial rule in the West further declined in the 460s and 470s, more Gallic territory was acquired by Euric by war or by treaty, culminating in the Gothic occupation of Provence and the Roman cession to him of the Auvergne in 474. 65 By about 480 at the latest the Visigothic kingdom in Gaul had come to extend from the valleys of the Loire and the Rhône to the Pyrenees and now also encompassed all of the Iberian peninsula, except for Galicia, which remained in the hands of the Sueves.
41 However, he decided instead to put his forces at the service of the Roman state. He married Galla Placidia, the halfsister of the emperor Honorius, who had been carried off in the sack of Rome in 410, and he began negotiating a military role for himself and his following with the imperial government. 42 The murderer, Sigeric, was himself killed a week later. That Ataulph was in Spain at this time probably means that the arrangements for Gothic military service in the peninsula, which were ﬁnalized under his successor Wallia (415–19), had already been made by the time of his death.

The last emperor to visit the Iberian peninsula was Majorian (458– 63), whose primary concern was the launching of an attack on the Vandals, who, after they had carried out the second sack of Rome in 455, were now regarded as the main threat to the very diminished imperial interests in the West.
