Widin was the last attested Ostrogothic noble in Italy. After Teia's defeat at the hands of the Byzantine eunuch general Narses at the Battle of Mons Lactarius, south of present-day Naples, in October 552 or early 553, organized Ostrogothic resistance ended. Widin, however, was able to organize a Gothic revolt in the mountainous northern Italy in the 550s. According to Paul the Deacon, Widin comes Gothorum and Amingus, a Frank, rebelled against Narses.
Widin was captured in 561 or 562 and sent to Constantinople. After that, the Ostrogoths faded in obscurity.
