Bavarian dynasty

The Bavarian dynasty was those kings of the Lombards who were descended from Garibald I, the Agilolfing duke of Bavaria. They came to rule the Lombards through Garibald's daughter Theodelinda, who married the Lombard king Authari in 588. The Bavarians (Italian: Bavarese) were really a branch of the Agilolfings, and were themselves two branches: the branch descended in the female line through Garibald's eldest child and daughter, Theodelinda, and the branch descended from Garibald's eldest son Gundoald. Of the first branch, only Adaloald, Theodelinda's son by her second husband, whom she had chosen to be king, Agilulf, reigned, though her son-in-law Arioald (married to her daughter Gundeberga) also ruled. Through Gundoald, six kings reigned in succession, broken only by the usurper Grimuald, who married Gundoald's granddaughter:

  • Aripert I (653–661), son of Gundoald
  • Godepert (661–662), eldest son of previous, jointly with
  • Berthari (661– 662, 672–688), second son of Aripert I, jointly with above until 662
  • Cunincpert (688 – 700), son of previous
  • Liutpert (700–701), son of previous
  • Raginpert (701), son of Godepert
  • Aripert II (701–712), son of previous
