Witiges or Vitiges (d. 540) was the king of the Ostrogoths from 536 to 540. He was the husband of Amalasuntha's only surviving child, Mathesuntha . Witiges had Theodahad murdered after the imprisonment and death of his mother-in-law. General Belisarius took both Witiges and Mathesuntha to Constantinople, and Witiges died there, without any children. After his death Mathesuntha married Germanus the patrician, a cousin of the Emperor Justinian.
