 Encyclopedia: Roderic
Roderic (Roderick; Rodrigo in Spanish and Portuguese, see Rurik for etymology), is reputed to be the last king of the Visigoths (709—711).
With the rise of Roderic to the throne of the Visigoths in Iberia, and with the death in 710 CE of the previous king, Witiza, the relatives and partisans of the latter fled to Ceuta (Septa) in North Africa, on the northern shore of the Maghreb.
A vassal or liege, in the terminology that both preceded and accompanied the feudalism of medieval Europe, is one who enters into mutual obligations with a lord, usually of military support and mutual protection, in exchange for certain guarantees, which came to include the terrain held as a fief.
