Meaning of the baby name AMALARIKIS.


AMALARIKIS.  Lithuanian name composed of amal "work," and rikis "commander, ruler," hence "work ruler."  The Gothic form is Amalareiks, the German Amalrich.

Amalarikis was a son of Alkrikis II.  When he was six years old, he was proclaimed king of the Balthagoths in 507. 
     After Alkrikis was killed in war by the Germans, the Balthagoths were fleeing with him towards Southern Spain, when Tautarikis the Great learned about the calamities that had befallen the Balthahothic nation, and declared himself protector of the boy.  And in order to check the German invasion of Spain, Tautarikis sent the Ostrogothic army, and the Germans were severely damaged.  Then the German king Chlodovech had to beg for peace; he acknowledged Amalarikis king of the Balthagoths, and with the remnants of his army he withdrew from Spain.
     Tautarikis  the Great appointed the Ostrogothic general Tautis protector and regent of Amalarikis.  In 531, Amalarikis was murdered in the church of Barcellona by the orders of Tautis. (Guthones, Rackus, 1929).
