  • Gothic War: Frankish invasion — Two Frankish-Alemanni dukes; the brothers Lothair and Buccelin, cross the Alps from Germany with a force of 75,000 men, mostly Frankish infantry. In the Po Valley, they win an easy victory over a much smaller Byzantine force at Parma, and are joined by remnants of the Gothic armies, bringing the total strength of the invaders to about 90,000 men. Narses, gathering his forces as quickly as possible, marched north to harass the Franks, but is not strong enough to engage them in battle. In Samnium (Southern Italy) the brothers divide their forces; Lothaire goes down the east coast, then returns to the north, to winter in the Po Valley. Buccelin follows the west coast to the very toe of the boot into Calabria, where he spent the winter — his army being seriously wasted by attrition and disease.
