GOOD FRIENDS AND FRIENDS OF HISTORY, I HOPE
OK, IN THIS VIDEO I’LL TALK TO YOU OF THE LIFE OF A PRINCESS AND FUTURE EMPERATRIZ
ROMANA, I ALREADY HAD ANOTHER VIDEO, BUT I KNOW THAT OF LOW QUALITY, SO A LITTLE
I’m going to replace. IN THIS VIDEO TOUCH THE ROMAN EMPERATRIZ TURN GALA PLACIDIA.
GALA PLACIDIA LIVED IN THE WORST TIME ROMAN EMPIRE OF WEST, ALMOST ALREADY IN ITS
DEFINITIVE FALL IN THE 5TH CENTURY AFTER CHRIST.
GALA PLACIDIA BORN IN CONSTANTINOPLA, CURRENT ISTANBUL IN TURKEY, DATE IS NOT KNOWN
EXACT OF HIS BIRTH, BUT ROCK BETWEEN 388 AND 393. HIS FATHER WAS THE EMPEROR THEODOSIUM
I, THIS EMPEROR WOULD BE THE ONE WHO ENDED BY DIVIDE THE ROMAN EMPIRE IN WEST AND EAST
AND HIS MOTHER ALSO CALLED GALA WHO WAS DAUGHTER OF VALENTINIAN I.
GALA PLACIDIA WOULD LOSE HIS MOTHER IN 394, SO I DIDN’T ENJOY HER, YOUR FATHER NOW
he had 2 CHILDREN from his first marriage, THE FUTURE EMPEROR HONOR, WHICH GOVERNMENT
THE ROMAN EMPIRE OF THE WEST AND THE EMPEROR ARCADIO THAT WOULD GOVERN THE ROMAN EMPIRE
EASTERN. EVEN FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENCE THERE IS NO
DATA, WE KNOW THAT Since I was a girl I was becoming In a devout Christian.
WHEN GALA WOULD COMPLY APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARS IN 410, YOU DON’T KNOW WELL IF IT WAS DURING
THE PACKAGE TO ROME, THAT FOR THAT MOMENT DOES NOT IT WAS THE CAPITAL OF THE EMPIRE, BUT RÁVENA,
IT WAS SEQUENTED BY THE VISIGODS. In that moment the king of the Visigoths was Alaric,
he wanted to continue on to africa but he could not comply because he just dies.
His successor was his brother-in-law ataulfo, who decided Go back to Gaul, what would be France today.
It is said that ataulfo and gala crossed glances and fell madly in love at that moment.
His Roman marriage was in 414 and with the Godo rite in 411. They had 1 son named
Theodosius They tried to make peace with him Roman Empire of the West but knowing
which gala married a barbarian, relationships got worse. Already by that time the
half hono of Honorio gala. Unfortunately the son of gala dies at
days of being born in 415 but his misery would not end there, but soon
Ataulfo would die too. Ataulfo was killed because Honorio when cutting off all the supplies,
decides to go to Hispania, current Spain, But everything gets worse
Most noble Goths wanted to cross the strait of gilbreb to reach north
from Africa, but ataulfo did not want to. He dies on August 14, 415, ataulfo was in
the stables, someone came from behind and stabbed him. Ataulfo came to name as
his successor to his younger brother Walia, but he would begin a small civil war, where in the end
The winner was sigeric. He only reigned 7 days since he was killed by walia. Despite
which was only 1 week, gala took the worst part, since it is said that Sigerico abused
gala and that made her walk barefoot together to slaves and sent to kill the 6 children
of ataulfo he had had with his first wife. So all this caused the disagreement
of those who supported wallia so kill Sigerico.
Wallia assumes again as king, and decided go to north africa but a storm destroys
All your boats. Visigoths do not fit another alternative than negotiating with the empire
Roman. In the negotiation gala placidia must return next to his brother in exchange for the empire
give food to the Visigoths. As soon as she arrived in Rome, Honorio forced her to
marry the general of the army constancy, this general has long wanted
be with gala, so it was fulfilled. From this marriage were born 2 children the future
Emperor Valentinian 3 and Honorius. In 421 constancy becomes coemperador
along with Honorio, but soon he dies. After the death of her husband, it begins
to rumored that Gala had conspired together with the Visigoths against their brother and that
also gala and his brother Honorio had a incestuous relationship. To end the
subject, Honorio expels gala and his children Towards the Eastern Roman Empire.
Honorio dies in 423, there was a short war civilian, but the son of
Valentinian gala 3, which at that time had 6 years, so Gala returns to the Roman Empire
from the west and becomes the empress regent of the empire until 437.
In his last years he ordered to build several churches, for example the basilica of san
John the Baptist and the cross in Ravenna, who only the oratory of San Lorenzo remains, more
known as mausoleum of gala placidia, which it is believed that I was buried there, but as
one of the graves was burned never could to know.
Gala placidia dies in 450, in Rome with luck if you can say you don’t have to
see the final fall of the Roman Empire from the west in 476.
It depends from where you look, there are people who consider her a traitor to her blood
and others that see very well that I have followed your heart, even though fate or as
They want to say it was very expensive. Friends, you who think, leave me
