Agiprand of Spoleto
In late 741, Thrasimund II refused to return to Pope Gregory III those cities he had promised him and Gregory's successor, Zachary, turned for support to King Liutprand. Zachary donated a Roman army to support the Lombards and together they took Spoleto and Liutprand installed his own nephew, Agiprand, as duke.
Agiprand's reign did not survive the death of Liutprand, when he was removed from power by Thrasimund.
