From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Faroald II (also spelled Faruald) was the duke of Spoleto from 703, when he succeeded his own father Thrasimund I.

Faroald attacked and took Classis, the port of Ravenna, but he was ordered to return it by King Liutprand. Faroald also founded and endowed the monastery of San Pietro in Valle at Ferentillo. In 724, Faroald's son Thrasimund rebelled against his father and put him in a monastery.
