  • ID: I71668
  • Name: Hugobert d? Austrasie
  • Suffix: Sénéchal de Bavière
  • Sex: M
  • Death: ABT 697
  • Note:

    Hugobert (also Chugoberctus or Hociobercthus) (died probably in 697) was a seneschal and a count of the palace at the Merovingian court during the reigns of Theuderic III and Childebert III. He was a grandson of the dux Theotar, and it is assumed, but not proven, that his father was a certain Chugus, who in 617 became mayor of the palace of Austrasia. The juxtaposition of names in the Vita Landiberto episcopi Traiectensis may imply a relationship between him and the family of Saint Lambert.
    It has been disproven that he is one and the same with bishop Hugobert of Liège, because his wife appears in the records of Echternach in the year 698 as a widow. He was married to Irmina of Oeren, whom shortly after his death, made possible the founding of the Abbey of Echternach. He last appears in a royal charter dated 14 March 697.
    Hugobert and Irmina had several daughters, including:
    ? Plectrude, 691/717 witnessed, the first wife of Pippin of Herstal and founder of the Abbey St. Maria im Kapitol in Cologne
    ? Adela of Pfalzel (b. ca. 660, d. ca. 735) founder of the convent Pfalzel
    ? Reginlind, whose second marriage after the death of her husband was to the duke Theudebert of Bavaria
    ? Chrodelind
    ? *possibly* Bertrada of Prüm (b. ca. 670, d. after 721), the founder of the Prüm Abbey and mother of count Caribert of Laon, who was father of Bertrada of Laon, who in turn was mother of Charlemagne.
