"ANSPRAND, son of --- (-712, bur Basilica of Hadrian). King Cunincpert appointed him guardian for his son when the latter succeeded in 700 as king of the Lombards. Ansprand fled after the battle at which Liutprand's forces were finally defeated by King Aripert II, first to the island of Commacina, then to Clavenna and later to Bavaria where he took refuge with Theutpert dux of Bavaria, remaining there for nine years. Paulus Diaconus records that Ansprand invaded Italy (after ten years exile in Bavaria) with Duke Theutpert, deposed King Aribert and succeeded as ANSPRAND King of the Lombards, although he died three months later. A later manuscript of the Origo Gentis Langobardorum names "Asprand" when recording that he succeeded "Aripert" and ruled for three years. m THEODORADA, daughter of --- (-after 702). Paulus Diaconus records that Theodorada wife of King Ansprand had her nose and ears cut by King Aripert II after boasting that she would some day become queen of the Lombards.
