  • Note:

    Anglo-Saxon aristocrat sold into slavery in France. She bore him three sons who all became kings after his death. The eldest, Clotaire, succeeded him and his second eldest, Childeric, was eventually placed on the Austrasian throne by Ebroin. The youngest, Theuderic, succeeded Childeric in Neustria and eventually became the sole king of the Franks.
    An Anglo-Saxon, perhaps a relative of King Ricbert of East Anglia, the last pagan king there, she was sold into slavery as a young girl (some accounts suggest by Vikings, others by the Anglo-Saxon king), the young Balthild served as a lady in waiting in the household of Erchinoald, Clovis' mayor of the palace.
