  1. What about Amalasuntha’s husband? When her son died, where was this guy? How could she marry her cousin if she was already married..

    1. Hiya Luke, unfortunately he died in episode 4 (around 1:06 minutes). He was a Visigoth prince called Eutharic. It’s not clear in all sources that Amalasuntha actually married Theodahad (the cousin) anyway, they may have been just co-rulers.

      Thanks for getting in touch!
