Das Reich der germanischen Goten unter Theoderich dem Großen um 523 nach der Zeitrechnung.gif

The Ostrogoths (German: Ostgoten) were a Germanic people, one part of the Goths, who established a kingdom north of the Black Sea in the 3rd century and, in the late 5th century, under their king Theodoric the Great, established a kingdom in Italy, which lasted until the 6th century.

A small group of Crimean Ostrogoths preserved their identity through the Middle Ages.
