Catualda

a noble youth of the German tribe of the Gotones. Dreading the violence of Maroboduus, he took to flight; but when the power of Maroboduus was in its decline, Catualda resolved npon taking vengeance. He assembled a large force, and invaded the country of the Marcomanni. Maroboduus fled across the Danube, and solicited the protection of the emperor Tiberius. But Catualda in his turn was conquered soon after by the Hermunduri under the command of Vibilius. He was made prisoner, and sent to Forum Julium in Gallia Narbonensis. (Tac. Ann. 2.62, 63.)
