Ataulf (sometimes spelled Athavulf or Athaulf, "father-wolf", Latinized as Ataulphus or Adolphus, in Spanish Ataúlfo) was king of the Visigoths from 410 to 415 CE.
Ataulf may have received some additional encouragement in the form of payments in gold from the Emperor Honorius—since Ataulf carried with him as a respected hostage the emperor's half-sister Galla Placidia, who had long been his captive.
Under Ataulf's rule, the Visigoths couldn't be said to be masters of a settled kingdom until Ataulf took possession of Narbonne and Toulouse in 413.

Ataulf (sometimes spelled Athaulf, "father-wolf") was king of the Visigoths from 410 to 415.
Under Ataulf's rule, the Visigoths could not be said to be masters of a settled kingdom until Ataulf took possession of Narbonne (413) and Toulouse, but they sustained an uneasy client relationship with the Western Roman Empire.
In reply, Ataulf acclaimed as Augustus Priscus Attalus, the former emperor whom Alaric had set up at Rome in opposition to Honorius at Ravenna, and who had remained with the Goths after he had been deposed and had even graced the wedding of Ataulf.

 Ataulf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Ataulf's first act was to halt Alaric's southward expansion of the Goths in Italy.
Under the latter's reign, Galla Placidia was returned to Ravenna where, in 417, at the urging of Honorius, she remarried, her new husband being the implacable enemy of the Goths, Constantius.
The main sources for the career of Ataulf are Paulus Orosius, the chronicles of the Galician bishop Hydatius, and those of Augustine's disciple, Prosper of Aquitaine.

After Rome's fourth-century decline and the beginning of its disintegration, Barcelona enjoyed one of its early golden ages as the Visigothic capital under the rule of Ataulf and the Roman Empress of the West, Galla Placidia (388-450), daughter of Theodosius I and one of the most influential and fascinating women of early European history.

At Rome he had made prisoner Theodosius' daughter Placidia, and he married her; but he did not choose to rule at Rome, because, as he said, his Goths would never bear a quiet life in a city.
Ataulf died in Spain, and Placidia came back to Ravenna, where Honorius gave her in marriage to a Roman general named Constantius, and she had a son named Valentinian, who, when his uncle died after thirty-seven years of a wretched reign, became Emperor in his stead, under his mother's guardianship, in 423.
Two great generals who were really able men were her chief supporters—Boniface, Count or Commander of Africa; and Aëtius, who is sometimes called the last of the Romans, though he was not by birth a Roman at all, but a Scythian.

His predecessor, Ataulf, had been mortally wounded in his bath at the palace of Barcelona by an assassin.
At Ataulf's death, Sarus' faction, the Amali, violated the laws of succession by immediately making Sigeric, the brother of Sarus, king.
Because Sigeric was an Amali, a member a rival subgroup among the Visigoths to the Balti (of which Ataulf and Wallia were part), then, in the succession of kings usually labeled the Balti dynasty, Sigeric is the only one who doesn't belong.
