The origin of the family you will find it in the years after the Lombard invasion of Italy
Our family was in the host force of king Albwin/Alboin as auxiliary force of an attached people called herulers(originally from South Russia).Our clan head and most distinguished member was of the rank of duke.
The name is not french or latin but a corruption of the lombard or erulian -
"BERATHEW".Latin copists of the time on hearing it rendered thus so,PEREDEO.Something related to a bear divinity.This cult can be found with much purity toward the north lands of that middle ages cultures in a Circle or Logia of soldiers called "Berasacks" of strange and semi-lunatic rites.After a Court scandal different family members left Italy and took asyl in the Byzantine,Wisigoth and Austrasian Courts seeking different fortunes.
Names varied somewhat at these destinations
