He usurped the throne in 701 and removed Liutpert, his grandnephew, putting his son Aripert in line for the succession. He and his Neustrians (men of Piedmont) went out to meet the regent, Ansprand, in battle and defeated him at Novara, but died shortly after. His son Aripert did not succeed in taking the throne right away.[1]

Garibald I: duke of Lower Bavaria (584-92). Born ca: 540, and died 592. married to the Princess Waldrade of Waccho I , king of Lombardy (ca:510-540)

She was married twice before, her first husband was King Theudebald I, of Austrasia, and King Clothair I of all Frank, who devorced her soon after their marriage, when she married Gariblad, as her third husband, by whom she had her only children.

We are told by 'Paulus the deacon', the historian of the Lombardians, who was born in 725, tht Waldrade was 'uni ex suis qui dicebatur Garibald', which goes to descibe Garibald I , as being the kinsmen of her two previous husbands. Also the Merovingian Kings Clothair II, and Clovis II, were being described Queen Gundeberga, Garibald's granddaughter as being their Kinswomen. They had a son, Gundwald and two daughters. Teudelinda, married King Authari of the Lombards and on his death in 591, married his successor King Agilulf (591-616), the other daughter married Euin, Duke of Trient.

Gundwald I: Duke of Lower Bavaria (592)

Shortly after succeeding as the Duke of Lower Bavaria, his cousin Tassilo I, duke of Upper Bavaria, attacked him and forced Gundwald to flee to Italy. He went to his sister Teudelinda, who was Queen of King Aripert, was elected King of Lombardy in Italy, on death of his cousin's husband.

Aripert I: King of Lombardy in Italy (r 656-61).

He was elected KING OF THE LOMBARDS,in 656, when his cousin Gundeberba's husband , King Rodoald was assassinated. King Aripert was a Christian of the Catholic faith, he built a Church dedicated to our Saviour, at Pavia. An unnamed daughter, married Grimwald, Duke of Benevento, he also had two sons. Perctarit and Godebert. The brothers ruled as joint Kings, but they soon quarrelled and Godebert called in his brother in law, Duke Grimwald to help hil, Grimwald had him killed.

Godebert I: joint King of Lombards in Italy (r 661-62). He reign jointly with his brother Perctarit., Being assassinated by his brother in law Grimwald, the Duke of Benevento, whom he called for help against his brother Perctarit from Italy, when they had quarrelled in 662 Grimwald then chased Perctarit from Italy and usurped the throne from 662 to 673, when Perctarit returned to the throne and ruled until his death in 689. Godebert had a son named Reginbert.

Reginbert 1: King of the Lombards in Italy (r 700).

He was Duke of Turin before succeeding as King. On the death of his cousin, King Cunnincpert I in 700, he rose in rebellion and marched eastward with a strong army and meet Ansprnad, the guardian of the Boy King Luitpert on the plain of Novara and defeated Ansprand and his allies and won the crown. Howver he dies three months later, he had two sons- Aripert and Gumbert.

Gumbert, Prince of the Lombards

Born ca: 665, and died in France in Exile in 700, at an unknow date. On the death of their father in 700, Gumbert's elder brother Aripert II succeeded to the throne, but he had to fight Anspand and his allies for the throne and Aripert being Victoriious, Ansprnd fled, leaving his family behind. King Aripert II in revenge , mutilated Ansprand's wife and one of their Daughters.

Ansprand returned with an army in 712, and was Victorious, and Aripert II was adviced by his supporters to flee to France and raise an army to fight for his throne, howver he was drowned crossing the river tecino.

Gumbert made it successfully to France with his three sons, he fled to France with his children as he feared that Ansparna would take revenge on his sons, in revenge for what his brother Aripert had done to his wife and daughter.

It was his great grandson Manfred III, Comte de Orleans, who in 834 returned to Italy on the request of his nephew, King Lothaire I, King of Italy (Future Emperor).

We learn from historians of the Lombards, Paulus the deacon, that one of Gumberts sons, Reginbert, became Comte de Orleansin France, the second Manfred became the ancestor of the Manfredingi, Counts of Toule, Metz, Orleans, and Verdun in France, and Manfredingi of Italy , whose descendants finally finished in Sicly and in Malta.
