Guidotto da Cremona appears in Neifile’s fifth tale (V, 5), where he is an aging Lombard knight. During a period of civil disorder, he rescued Agnesa while plundering houses with Guiglielmino da Medicina, and he raised her as a daughter, planning to use the plunder for her eventual dowry. On his deathbed, he gives her over to the care of his friend Giacomino da Pavia.
