The Ostrogoths (also spelled "Osthrogoth") were the eastern branch of the ancient Germanic tribe known as the Goths. The other branch was the Visigoths (Western-Goths).

The Ostrogoths are remembered for invading Italy and being involved in Roman politics during the waning days of the Roman Empire. Their most notable king was Theoderic the Great (German name: Dietrich von Bern).
