Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hasdingi were the southern tribes of the Vandals, an East Germanic tribe. They lived in areas of today's southern Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. They were part of the migratory movements of the Vandals, into the Iberian peninsula and later on to North Africa.

They settled in Gallaecia, in 409, as foederati, today Galicia and north of Portugal.

Gunderic, king of the Hasdingi, lost his kingdom to the Suebi king Hermeric after a battle against an allied force of Suebi and Romans. He fled to Baetica with his army where he became king of the Silingi Vandals and of the Alans.
