December 15, 533 AD – Belisarius defeated the Vandals at Tricamarum
Belisarius defeated the Vandal King Gelimer in battle, effectively ending the Vandal rule of North Africa; and ending the Vandals as a people.
After the battle, the Vandal warriors were incorporated into the Eastern Roman army and scattered throughout the Eastern frontier. A select few were enlisted in Belisarius’ “Bucellarii”, or Household Regiment the core of all of his armies.
The Vandal women married their East Roman conquerors, in order to hold onto their property under the new administration.
