Waltari son of Wacho from his third wife Silinga, was a king of the Lombards from 539 to 546. He was an infant king, and the rule was administered by Audoin. Audoin probably killed Waltari before he reached manhood, in order to gain the throne for himself in ca. 546, and led the Lombards into Pannonia.[1] Procopius says he died of disease. He was the last of the Lething Dynasty.
