Theodoric Strabo[edit]

This is possibly a minor character, but none the less deserves a good article. I would appreciate any comment on it.--BlaiseMuhaddib 01:09, 22 September 2006 (UTC)


Best I can do is to research sources for you to get you from start to B Class. This person is a hard find, but historians seem to always differentiate from Theodoric the Great by Thoedoric, Son of Triarus. Electrawn 09:12, 22 September 2006 (UTC)


Well, this is a good article! As a matter of fact, a very good article! Comprehensive, well-citated, with well-captioned photos. Neat and nice! Why don't you nominate it for GA? I think it will pass. And then you'll see if there's any chance for FA. Minor remarks:

  • The only drawback, but important one, that I can find is the lack of sources. You have only two references. I donot think for GA this is a problem (again, nobody can be sure about that!), but it would be better if you could find some more sources. I understand, of course, it is difficult. So, if you don't find additional sources and you get criticized for that, just explain that additional sources are not available.
  • Prerequisite for this remark is the existence of additional sources and comments about him: It would be nice to have some assessments, criticisms, laudations of Theodoric Strabo's career. It's nice to enrich a biographical article with such things and not only events. But, again, are there any more sources?--Yannismarou 15:18, 22 September 2006 (UTC)


Which dynasty he belonged to? Isn't he Amaling too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Greutungen (talkcontribs) 12:12, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Not entirely certain. I seem to remember somewhere that he is a distant cousin of Theodoric the Great, but I am not entirely certain of the degree of relationship, or if the are "cousins" in the sense that they are both from the same Gothic branch (Ostrogoths)... 15:31, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Lucien Musset said he was uncle of Theodoric THe Great, but uncertainly, by father or by mother--Greutungen (talk) 08:34, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
