Abstract. Nearly integrable families of Hamiltonian systems are considered in
the neighbourhood of normally parabolic invariant tori.
In the integrable case such tori bifurcate into normally elliptic
and normally hyperbolic invariant tori.
With a KAM-theoretic approach it is shown that both the normally
parabolic tori and the bifurcation scenario survive the perturbation,
parametrised by pertinent large Cantor sets.
These results are applied to rigid body dynamics.
