Compiler's 35/36/37/38 x great-grandfather
Of Frankish origin.
Count of Brescia, Parma, Piacenza, Modena and Bergamo in 817. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Rathaldo episcopi et Suppone comite Brixiensi" as missi [in 817]. He was instrumental in suppressing the revolt of Bernard ex-King of Italy.
He was installed as SUPPO I Duke of Spoleto in 822.
Einhard's Annales record that "Winigisius dux Spolitinus" died in 822 after becoming a monk, and that he was succeeded by "Suppo BrixiŠ civitatis comes" Einhard's Annales record the announcement of the death "III Non Mar" of "Suppo dux Spolitinus". He was succeeded as Duke of Spoleto by "Adalhard the younger", who died "after holding the office for barely five months".
The name of the Duke Suppo's wife has not yet been identified. However, the fact that their son was named Adelgis suggests a Lombard origin. 1
