|Germanic| |Tribes|, |Vandal| |Kingdom,| |North| |Africa,| |Thrasamund,| |496| |-| |523| |A.D.|, |nummus|
Under Thrasamund the Vandal kingdom declined and lost control of nearly all of modern Algeria to the Berbers. In his last year, the important port city of Leptis Magna was sacked. On the other hand, he maintained a firm grip on the heartland of the kingdom (modern Tunisia and eastern Algeria). He also ended many years of Christian persecution, which improved relations with the Byzantine Empire.
