Title: Adaloald  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Agilulf, Arioald, Rule of the Dukes, King of Italy, 626
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Adaloald (602–626) was the Lombard king of Italy from 616 to 626.[1] Son and heir of King Agilulf and his Catholic queen Theodelinda, he was baptised shortly after his birth in 602. He was an associate king, raised on the shield by the warriors at his father's request, when still young. Upon becoming sole king as a teen, he reigned under his mother as regent.

Adaloald went insane and lost the support of the nobles. He was deposed in 626 by Arioald, a Lombard noble from Turin and husband of the king's sister Gundeberga, who was hostile to the Catholic Church. Adaloald died mysteriously in Ravenna shortly after.
