Theodelap of Spoleto

Theodelap or Theudelapius[1] was one of the sons of Faroald, the first Duke of Spoleto. After the death, in 601 or 602, of Ariulf, Theodelap and his brother fought for the throne and, after his victory, Theodelap was crowned duke. He held the dukedom for more than half a century, until his death.[2] His reign was nevertheless uneventful and he appears to have been largely or completely independent of royal authority throughout it. He was succeeded by Atto.


  1. ^ Also Teudelapius or Theudelaupus.
  2. ^ His death occurred between 650 and 653, but the exact date given differs between sources.
