AD. Because of his restoration activities, Justinian has sometimes been called the "Last Roman (Last of the Romans)" in modern historiography, for instance by G.P. Baker (''Justinian'', New York 1938), or in the ''Outline of Great Books'' series (''Justinian the Great''). This ambition was expressed by the partial recovery of the territories of the defunct Western Roman Empire. His general Belisarius swiftly conquered the Vandal Kingdom in North Africa

Justinian indeed sent an able agent of his, Peter of Thessalonica (Peter the Patrician), to carry out the negotiations, but before he had even crossed into Italy, Athalaric had died (on 2 October 534), Amalasuntha had crowned Theodahad as king in an effort to secure his support, and he had deposed and imprisoned her.

Ostrogothic Kingdom

The '''Ostrogothic Kingdom''' was established by the Ostrogoths in Italy (Italian peninsula) and neighbouring areas from 493 to 553.

In Italy the Ostrogoths, led by Theoderic the Great, killed and replaced Odoacer, a Germanic soldier, erstwhile-leader of the ''foederati'' in northern Italy, and the ''de facto'' ruler of Italy, who had deposed the last emperor of the Western Roman Empire, Romulus Augustulus, in 476. Under Theoderic, its first king, the Ostrogothic kingdom reached its zenith, stretching from modern France in the west into modern Serbia in the southeast. Most of the social institutions of the late Western Roman Empire were preserved during his rule.

Starting in 535, the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (Eastern Roman Empire) invaded Italy under Justinian I. The Ostrogothic ruler at that time, Witiges, could not defend successfully and was finally captured when the capital Ravenna fell. The Ostrogoths rallied around a new leader, Totila, and largely managed to reverse the conquest, but were eventually defeated. The last king of the Ostrogothic Kingdom was Teia.
