German - A king of the Lombards. Son of Audoin. Husband of Rosamund. When Alboin went to war with the Gepidae, their king, Thurisind, was killed and Alboin forcibly married the king's daughter, Rosamund. The skulls of the dead were made into drinking vessels and when Alboin tried to force Rosamund to drink from her father's skull she refused and persuaded the giant Perideus to kill Alboin. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Alboin.
