Queen's grave?

Langobardian decorative horse tack, after 500 AD. Hauskirchen, Lower Austria.

The splended horse tack comes from a woman’s grave and is regarded as a masterpiece of the Langobardian goldsmiths.
The grave was discovered in 1967. But it had been looted long ago, probably in the first decade after the burial.
The tack for two draft horses (that was left in the grave i.a.) is made of fire-gilt bronze and silver, and decorated with red glass insets. Typical Germanic motifs, such as crow’s heads with sharply curved beaks, gnawing predators, and even a human mask, were deeply engraved into the metal.
The fittings in the woman’s grave are so rich that archeologists are tempted to see the woman as a member of the Langobardian royal house.
