From Ravenna in Late Antiquity:

There was therefore no real unity in Italy when yet another group of barbarians, the Lombards, appeared at the Alpine passes in 568. [15] The Lombards (Langobardi, "Long Beards") had coalesced as a group in the Balkans in the late 5th century and moved into Pannonia after the death of Theoderic (Aug. 30, 526), where they were settled as foederati by Justinian (ruled Aug. 1, 527 - Nov. 14, 565). Their ambitious king Alboin married Chlodosinda, daughter of the Frankish king Lothar I (c. 497 - Nov. 29, 561, wife Ingundis d. between 538 and 546), Alboin annihilated another group, the Gepids, in 567, and after Chlodosinda's death, he married the Gepid princess Rosamunda, a move that was, as Paul the Deacon says, "to his own injury, as afterward appeared."
