Visigothic Kingdom / King Recceswinth

Visigothic Kingdom - King Recceswinth (30 September 653 - 1 September 672)

Recceswinth (Gothic: Raikaswinþs), also known as Reccesuinth, Recceswint, Reccaswinth, Recesvinto (Spanish, Galician and Portuguese), Recceswinthus, Reccesvinthus, and Recesvindus (Latin), (? – 1 September 672) was the Visigothic King of Hispania, Septimania and Galicia in 649–672. He ruled jointly with his father Chindaswinth until his father's death in 653.

Under Recceswinth, the Visigothic Kingdom enjoyed unbroken peace for 19 years (653–672) - except for a brief rebellion of the Vascons, led by a Gothic noble named Froya. During the rebellion, the Vascons penetrated as far as Saragossa, and committed great atrocities until Froya was captured and put to death.
