  • ID: I115466
  • Name: Liutprand KING OF THE LOMBARDS 1
  • Name: Liutprand OF THE LOMBARDS
  • Sex: M
  • Change Date: 19 APR 2010
  • Death: 0744 1
  • Event: Accedence 0712
  • Note:
    Liutprand was the King of the Lombards from 712 to 744 and is chiefly remembered for his Donation of Sutri, in 728, and his long reign, which brought him into a series of conflicts, mostly successful, with most of Italy. He profited by Byzantine weakness to enlarge his domains in Emilia and the Romagna.

    The reign of Liutprand, son of Ansprand, duke of Asti and briefly king of the Lombards, began the day before his father's death when magnates called to Ansprand's deathbed consented to make Liutprand his colleague. Liutprand's reign endured for thirty-one years. Within the Lombard kingdom he was considered a lawgiver of irreproachable Catholicity.

  • Event: Note 0712
  • Note: In the spring of 712, his wife's brother Theodebert, with Ansprand and Liutprand, attacked Lombard strongholds, and with the drowning of their fleeing rival Aripert, Ansprand's faction were back in power at Pavia. 1
  • Birth: ABT 0690 2
  • Event: Note
  • Note: Liutprand's life began inauspiciously. His father was driven to exile among the Bavarians, his older brother Sigipert was blinded by Aripert II, king of the Lombards and his mother and sister were mutilated. Liutprand was spared only because his youth made him appear harmless. He was released from Aripert I's custody and allowed to join his father 1



    Father: Ansprand OF THE LOMBARDS b: ABT 0657

    Marriage 1 Guntrud OF BAVARIA b: ABT 0705
    • Married:
    • Note: At the opening of his reign, Liutprand's chief ally among neighboring rulars was the Agilolfing Theodo I, the Frankish duke of Bavaria. Theodo I's intervention on Ansprand's behalf helped him gain the throne. Theodo had taken him in, when he and his father were temporarily expelled by Aripert II in 702, and the hospitality was later cemented with a marriage connection: Liutprand took to wife the Agilolfing Guntrud. The core of Theodo's policy was resistance to the Merovingian mayors of the palaces in their encroachments north of the Alps, concerns that did not much occupy Liutprand, and maintaining strategic control of the eastern Alpine passes in what is now the Italian Alps, which did. 1

      Note:
      Chronological age estimator based on child's birthdate minus 20-25 years (for females), minus 30-35 years (for males) or minus a set # of years in those cases where an ancestor's birth date is known & a descendants' birth date is known (i.e. if five generations are known to have elapsed in a 150 year time interval, then the estimator is used for each generation, every 30 years). Also used for societies where children generally did not accede to kingships, etc., ascension date minus 30 years. Also used based on a known spousal birthdate, i.e. -2-4 years for females, +2-4 years for males.
