This chapter discusses the start of the conflict between the two Gothic groups: the Amal-led Goths that settled in Pannonia and the Thracian Goths. It describes each Gothic group, before identifying the main cause of the conflict: the advancement of the Amal-led Goths into Illyricum. Emperor Leo provided the Amal-led Goths with good agricultural land and the Thracian Goths with subsidy that was seven times more than that which he gave to the Amal-led Goths. The peace between these two Gothic groups was not to last; 12 months after the death of Emperor Leo the balance of power was shattered.

Keywords:   conflict, Amal-led Goths, Thracian Goths, Illyricum, subsidy, agricultural land, Emperor Leo
