Evidence of Descendancy

It is possible that a connection between the Taifals and the Taifalos family can be found in the following statements.

Clues can be drawn from the following three parragraphs found on the web.


The last mention of the Taifals as a distinct gens  dates from year 565, but their Oltenic remnants almost certainly took part in the Lombard migration and invasion of Italy in 568.


The Taifals were probably never Arians. Their conversion to the Orthodox Catholic  faith probably occurred through Roman evangelism in the mid fifth century.


"In 328 AD Constantine the Great conquered Oltenia and the Taifals, probably taking this opportunity to resettle a large number in Phrygia, in the Diocese of Nicholas of Myra."
