THE LOMBARD KINGS OF ITALY

Legend: the Lombards (also called Langobards) (originally called the Winnili tribe) migrated from Scandinavia to the European Continent under the brothers (2A) Ibor (Ebbe) and (2B) Agjo (Agio), the two sons of (01) Gausus, who gave the Gungingi Dynasty its name. Agjo was the ancestor of

30. Gambara, Lombard Queen, & last monarch of the Gungingi Dynasty; the wife of

31. Agila, aka AEgelmund, "1st" King of Lombards [in right of his wife]. They were childless. Here enters the story that a prostitute gave birth to a boy and threw him into a pond to drown, when King AEgelmund and Queen Gambara happened to ride by and rescued the boy and adopted the abandoned infant, whose name was

32. Lamicho (Lamissio), who succeeded his adoptive parents as the King of the Lombards, founding another dynasty. He had no sons only a single daughter, an heiress, the wife of
