      Third Gothic War 248-249 AD

      After the latest peace accord with Rome ended King Ostrogota
      anew crossed the Danube with his armies. The legions retreated
      everywhere and Rome sent the battlehardened C.M. Decius
      to take care of imperial border defense. Decius got rid of all
      Germanic soldiers in the army. Those forced to leave joined
      the armies of King Ostrogota. He moved with 300,000 men (Goths,
      Taifali, Vandali, Carpi and Bastarnae) and attempted to storm
      Marcianopel. Decius had to retreat. Ostrogota stood in front
      of Byzantium when he had to return to deal with a Visigothic
      (Kniva) and a Gepidic (Fastida) uprising.

      King Ostrogota battles the revolting Kniva and Fastida during 249 AD.
      He falls in battle and the new Gothic elected King is Kniva, who
      at once continued the war against Rome.
