Cleph

Rules the Kingdom of the Lombards for 18 months

Description:

Once the Duke of Ticinum. Then rules the Lombards as king for 18 months after Alboin is assasinated.

“He was a violent and terrifying figure to the Romans and Byzantines struggling to maintain control of the peninsula. He extended Lombard dominion over all of northern Italy, finishing the conquest of Tuscany and bringing Lombard authority to the gates of Ravenna. He was assassinated after an 18-month reign by a young guard, a slave whom he had mistreated.” -Wikipedia

Cleph’s son, Authari, due to his young age, is passed over as king in favor of the decentralized, independent Rule of the Dukes.
