Tudrus was a brother-in-arms of Segestes, close to the latter's own age. Segestes' daughter Thusnelda was promised to Arminius. When Segestes had reason to believe that Arminius was planning open rebellion against Rome, he broke off that engagement and promised Thusnelda to Tudrus instead. The incensed Arminius snuck into Segestes' household and spirited away the willing Thusnelda.
While primary sources suggest that Thusnelda's betrothal to Arminius was challenged, the precise circumstances are not made clear. The name Tudrus probably comes from a chief of the Quadi in approximately the same time period.
