  1. Ansa, Queen of the Lombards

    Ansa or Ansia belonged to an aristocratic family of Brescia and was the wife of Desiderius, King of the Lombards. The Latin name does not imply a Romano-Italic origin, as Romans and Lombards in the eighth century tended to take either German or Latin names. She was probably a Lombard, the daughter of Verissimo and sister of King Hildeprand, Arechis, and Donnolo, and niece of King Liutprand. In or around 753, she founded the monastery of S. Michele and S. Pietro at Brescia. Desire, meanwhile, had become an authoritative person and the couple moved first to Italy, at the royal court, and in Tuscany, when desire became 'Duke of Tuscia'. The death of King Aistulf, Desire managed to seize the throne. Ansa, become queen, actively collaborated with her husband, especially in religious matters. In Brescia, expanded the previously founded monastery, which became the monastery of San Salvatore, endowed him with an exceptional wealth and made abbess daughter Anselperga. The jurisdiction of San Salvatore was subjugated an entire network of monasteries in Lombardy, Emilia and Tuscany, creating a federation directly controlled by the sovereign. After 759, she appeared frequently in Desiderius' diplomas and was probably the architect of his religious policy.
