Brief Bio of 3 Leaders

Chnodomar (also known as Chnodomarius) had mobilized the Alemanni for battle during the Battle of Strasbourg and led them from the front, which they were defeated and he was captured.

Two leaders, Lothar and Butilin, led Alamanni during the battle of Casilinum.

Lothar was leading one of the columns, which later died of disease during the battle.

Buitilin was also leading another part of the army, but they were suffering from unusual heat.

Legacy of Alamanni

The Alemannic German is a separate family of a form of language of their region that was within the High Germans. This was used to form other subgroups of languages such as the Low Alemannic and High Alemannic. The Brünig-Napf-Reuss is a cultural boundary line within the High Alemannic, which marks the division of Alemannia and the Argovia, which is in between Alemannia and Burgundy.
