Alboin was king of the Lombards from 560 circa to 572. During his reign the Lombards ended their migrations by definitively settling in Italy, of which the northern part was conquered by Alboin between 569 and 572. His actions were to have lasting consequences in both the Pannonian Basin and Italy; in the first instance the role played by Alboin brought to the downfall of dominance by Germanic peoples of the region, while in the second opened the door to centuries of Lombard rule and presence in Italy, but never to be uncontested. He succeeded his father Audoin on the throne in Pannonia in a period of severe confrontation with their neighbors in the area, the Gepids, led by king Cunimund.
