 Ermanaric
The second reason for Ermanaric’s memory to be viewed with suspicion was the way he met his end.
Ermanaric initially resisted but would seem to have been seized by an overwhelming feeling of fear and mental paralysis, leading him to commit suicide “to escape his fear of making crucial decisions”.
His role as King has been equated as much to a High Priest as to a warrior and it was suggested, both by contemporaries and by later writers, that his “suicide” was in fact a voluntary ritual sacrifice to the Gods in an attempt to avert the dire threat from the Huns.

 THE HEROIC SAGA-CYCLE OF DIETRICH OF BERN - F. E. Sandbach
Strictly speaking, the only points in which the Dietrich saga agrees with the formula are that the hero returns in triumph to his own country, rules in security after his enemy's death, and at last meets with and extraordinary, or at any rate mysterious, death himself.
The historical Ermanaric, compared by some Roman historians with Alexander the Great, was a very different character from the Ermanaric of saga.
Gradually the Ermanaric of saga became the type of cruelty and tyranny, and with him was associated an evil counsellor, Bikka, who, to avenge the death of relatives of his own, incited his master to further atrocities, among them the execution of his only son.

 The Saga of Ermanaric
To be sure, Ermanaric is the first who is attested as King of the Greutungi and King of the Ostrogoths.
But the Origo Gothica described in Ermanaric certain personal traits and behavior that in the heroic saga developed into the theme of the king as a demonic tyrant and destroyer of his own race.
The other plausible etymology sees in the Rosomoni "the reds." This designation could be derived from the custom of dyeing the hair red, which is known to us especially from war bands who pledged themselves to a divine ancestor as their warlord.

This so-called "split" or more appropriately, resettlement of western tribes into the Roman province of Dacia, was a natural result of population saturation of the area along the Black Sea where these Ostrogoths established a vast and powerful kingdom.
The rise of the Huns around 370 brought the Ostrogoth under their supremacy, possibly prompting the Visigothic leader Fritigern to request resettlement across the Danube, and perhaps the Ostrogothic ruler Ermanaric's suicide in 378 reported by Ammianus.
According to the Getica of Jordanes, this Ermanaric lived to be a 110years old.

They split into two divisions, their names reflecting the areas in which they settled; the Ostrogoths settled in Ukraine, while the Visigoths, or West Goths, moved further west of them.
By c.375 the Huns conquered the Ostrogothic kingdom ruled by Ermanaric, which extended from the Dniester River, north and east to the headwaters of the Volga River.
The Ostrogoths were subject to the Huns until the death (453) of Attila, when they settled in Pannonia (roughly modern Hungary) as allies of the Byzantine (East Roman) empire.

This expansion became explosive under a little-known king named Ermanaric (342?-372), forming an empire that levied tribute on all German and Slavic tribes between the Baltic and the Black Seas (modern Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and Ukraine).
Ermanaric found this out when he foolishly attacked the Huns.
His disastrous defeat was followed by a Hun invasion that shattered his kingdom; Ermanaric reportedly cut his throat to avoid capture by the new, terrifying enemy.

Other Germanic peoples have also preserved literary or pictorial accounts of many of these persons, and some of them are based on historical characters, e.g.
Ermanaric (Jörmunrekr), the 4th century King of the East Goths and Attila (Atli), King of the Huns (of the 5th century).
The oldest Eddic lays have been dated to the 9th century, and it is thought likely that most of them were composed in the last period of paganism, but some not until after the conversion to Christianity.

This second Alexander, as he was fitly called, held sway from the sandy lake-pitted shores of the Baltic over the fl lands ('uberes agri,' Ammianus calls them) of Russia, down to the river deltas of the Black Sea coast, and from the Carpathians ('Harvaða-fiællom' of our Lays) to the Eastern steppes.

 The shared - and not so shared - history of Pridnestrovie and Moldova
Instead, from approximately 300 to 376 AD, the territory of Pridnestrovie was ruled by Ermanaric, whose empire stretched south of the Pripet Marshes between the Don and Dniester rivers.
Ermanaric respected the natural border provided by the Dniester and did not rule over any of the territory which is today Moldova.
East Slavs settle in Pridnestrovie: 600 AD By 600 AD, the so-called East Slavs settled along the Dnieper river in what is now Ukraine; they then spread westward to the basins of the northern Dniester and the Southern Buh (Bug river).

Their expansion didn't take the form of a migration back to their old homes, but seems to have been more economic and probably based on extracting tribute in exchange for peace.
The first Ostrogothic king that we have any significant information about was Ermanaric, who likely ruled from about 320 to 375, and who by around 350 controlled an expanse of territory from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea.
However, by 360, the Huns began to apply pressure on them from the east, and by 375 had not only destroyed the Ostrogothic kingdom, but also taken it over.

 Dietrich ... - TheologyWeb Campus
We have archaeological evidence that Verona and Ravenna (another city mentioned in the Dietrich saga) was occupied during the mid-first millenium A.D. Does this confirm that the saga of Dietrich of Bern is historically accurate?
The story contains anachronisms, such as Attila, Gunther and Ermanaric all living contemporaneously with Dietrich, a historical impossibility.
But of course this leaves us with a completely unbelievable story where there were other Ermanarics and Attilas, also leaders of the same groups that the historically known ones led, living just a generation earlier or later.
