Visigothic Kingdom / King Wamba

Visigothic Kingdom - King Wamba (672 - 680)

Wamba (Medieval Latin: VVamba, Vamba, Wamba; c. 643 – 687/688) was the king of the Visigoths from 672 to 680. During his reign the Visigothic kingdom encompassed all of Hispania and part of southern Gaul known as Septimania.

According to Herwig Wolfram, "Wamba" means "big paunch" in Gothic and may have been a nickname. Both Julian of Toledo in his Historia Wambae ("History of Wamba") and the decisions of the eleventh Council of Toledo, held under Wamba's auspices, only refer to the king as Wamba.
