About Ansprand, duke of Spoleto

Agiprand of Spoleto

Agiprand was briefly the Duke of Spoleto between 742 and 744.

In late 741, Thrasimund II refused to return to Pope Gregory III those cities he had promised him and Gregory's successor, Zachary, turned for support to King Liutprand. Zachary donated a Roman army to support the Lombards and together they took Spoleto and Liutprand installed his own nephew, Agiprand, as duke.

Agiprand was already the duke of Clusium when he was invested with Spoleto. Agiprand escorted Zachary back to Rome from Interamna[disambiguation needed] and restored the cities he requested.

Agiprand's reign did not survive the death of Liutprand, when he was removed from power by Thrasimund.

Om Ansprand, duke of Spoleto (Norsk)

Agiprand, Hertug av Spoleto

Agiprand var hertug av Spoleto en kort tid mellom 742 og 744.

I slutten 741 nektet Thrasimund II å levere tilbake byene til pave Gregor III som han hadde lovet han. Gregors etterfølger, pave Zacharias ga sin støtte til kong Liutprand for han trengte langobardenes hjelp. Han sendte derfor en romersk hær for å støtte dem og sammen de tok Spoleto.

Kong Liutprand inn sin egen nevø, Agiprand som herug av Spoleto. Agiprand var allerede hertug av Clusium (i dag ca område Toscana).

Agiprand eskorterte pave Zacharias tilbake til Roma fra Interamna og inntok de byene han valgte. Agiprands regjeringstid overlevde ikke Liutprand død, når han ble fjernet fra makten av Thrasimund II.
