The Visigoths were a Germanic people, one part of the Goths, who raided Roman territories repeatedly, notably defeating a Roman army and killing the Roman emperor at the Battle of Adrianoplee in 378. They sacked the city Rome in 410. They later established a kingdom in parts of what is now France, Portugal, and Spain. In 711, Islamic invaders conquered this kingdom, establishing Al-Andalus.
