    aka Theodoric I of Septimania.
    The name "Machir," comes from Genesis 50:23, used by R. Machir, in Iraq, and Narbonne, France; 8th-9th century.1 Theodoric I of Septimania was received by Charlemagne and was given the title "King of the Jews".2 His ancestry is possibly one of the greatest lineages of antiquity. Theodoric, claimed (or others do for him) descent not only from the Merovingian Kings, but lineal descent from King David himself. Both the king and the Pope acknowledged this pedigree. Also called Makhir Natronai ben Habibi the Resh Galuta.3 Exilarch of Narbonne in Septimania.4 Also called Rabbi Makir ha-David.2 Also called Dietrich. He was born circa 720 in Babylonia, Persian Empire. He was the son of Habibai beni David (David Descent Tradition).5 He married Alda des Francs, daughter of Carolus Martellus, dux Francorum and Chrothais , a concubine, before 740.6,7 Count in 742.8 "The evidence is sketchy and muddled at this distance, but a persistant account of Theodoric I has it that he was the Jewish Exilarch in Narbonne, and that he succeeded in establishing a regionally autonomous Jewish-led state around Narbonne. Makhir has been identified as being Makhir Natronai, Resh Galuta in Baghdad, ousted from that position by a cousin in 771. If true, it would be a matter of considerable interest; the Baghdad Exilarchs were reputed to be lineal descendents of the ancient Hebrew King David.What is fairly clear is that Septimania achieved an independent position in this era by some means or other, with the status of a Duchy or even possibly a Kingdom.?
    He was living between 771 and 793.7 He was sent by Haroun Al-Rashid, Calif of Baghdad to Charlemagne, King of the West at his request, who wanted to establish in Europe a middle class based on a Jewish nucleus between 786 and 793.
    He died before 804.
