Veremund

Veremund or Veremundus (giving rise to the later Castilian name Vermudo/Bermudo) was a Suevic King of Galicia around 485, during a period of obscurity for the region following the death of the chronicler Hydatius (469) and the Sueves conversion to Arianism (466). If he existed, he was undoubtedly an Arian.

Veremund's existence is conjectured on the basis of a sixth-century inscription discovered at Salvador de Vairão. The date in the inscription has been read as 485, although some have dated it to the eighth century, making its Veremundus Bermudo I of Asturias; more recently, a date of 535 has been put forward.
