What Is A Historyscope?

Westerners are not only known as history ignoramuses, but double dumbass history ignoramuses when it comes to Italy's history. Since I'm the one-and-only Historyscoper (tm), let me quickly bring you up to speed before you dive into my Master Historyscope.

In 702 Lombard king Raginpert and his Neustrians (from Piedmont) defeat Liutpert's regent (since 701) Ansprand (657-712), duke of Asti at the Battle of Novara, but Raginpert dies shortly afterward, and his son Aripert (Aribert) II (-712) succeeds as Lombard king of Italy (until 712), defeating Ansprand at Pavia and capturing little Liutpert, then strangling him in his bath, and forcing Ansprand over the Alps into Bavaria by next year, going on to court Pope John VI by donating large tracts in the Cottian Alps to the papacy and fight numerous rebellions and Slovene raids into Venetia.
