German - A shield-bearer to Alboin. When Alboin was murdered by Perideus at the behest of Alboin's wife, Rosamund, she became ruler of the Lombards and proposed to marry Helmigis. Her subjects would not accept such a man as king and they fled together. She grew tired of him and gave him a poisoned drink. He forced her to drink half of it and they died together. Occasionally identified as Helmigis.
