The Kingdom of Lombardy (Lombard: Regno Longobardo, Latin: Regnum Langobardorum, German: Langobardenreich), also known as the Kingdom of Italy or Lombardy-Burgundy, but more commonly known as Lombardy is one of the constituent states of the Holy Roman Empire. It is comprised of most of northern and central Italy, and is also tied to Burgundy in a personal union.
Lombardy is a relatively powerful nation in the Empire, and arguably the most important Italian state in the Empire.
