              Text: Dagobert I, King des Francs. Born:
              in 603, son of Clotaire=Chlothar II, King de Soissons
              and Bertrude, Some sources assert that Dagobert I was
              born in the year 606. Note - between 623 and 629: Dagobert I
              became King of Austrasie in 623 and King of the Franks in
              629. At the age of about 25 years, Dagobert, son of Clotaire
              II and of Bertrade, takes over the succession without difficulty.
              He must first determine the fate of his half-brother
              Charibert (son of Queen Sichilde), for whom his uncle
              Brodulf wanted to yield at least Neustria. Dagobert does not
              cimply and purely eliminate his half-brother, but he sends
              him to Aquitaine by yielding to him the cities of Saintes,
              Perigeux, Toulouse, Cahors, Agen and the countryside between
              Garonne and the Pyrenees whose residents had taken advantage
              of the troubles in the kingdom to ally themselves with the
              Basques. Dagobert wins Dijon and also Saint-Jean-de-Losne
              where he lives for a few days and meets out justice. The day
              of his departure from Losne to Chalon, as he bathes before
              sunrise, he has Brodulf, Uncles of his half-brother
              Charibert, assassinated, the murder being executed by two of
              Dagobert's sons and the patrician Guillebaud. In 630, he
              negotiates a Treaty with the Emperor of Byzantium,
              Heraclius, a perpetual peace through the intermediary of his
              envoys, Servais and Paterne. Upon his return to Paris,
              Dagobert repudiates his wife Gomatrude, sister of Queen
              Sichilde, herself married to the deceased Clotaire II,
              Dagobert's father. He immediately, in 631, marries
              Nanthilde, a simple housekeeper. The reign of Nantilde lasts
              only a few years. Dagobert surrounds himself with other
              women, Vulfegonde, then Berthilde, finally Raintrude, an
              Austrasian, whom he took as concubine in the eighth year of
              his reign. He was skillfully taught and supported by his
              Ministers Saint Eloi [who was Dagobert's treasurer and then
              became Bishop after Dagobert died] and Dadon [alias Saint
              Ouen, who became Bishop of Rouen in 641 and who was
              instrumental in the founding of several monasteries
              including those of Saint-Wandrille, Rebais, and of Jumieges]
              . He fought the Austrasians and gave them his son, Sigebert,
              as next king at age 3 [in fact the Bishop of Cologne and a
              Duke will govern in his name] . With the Austrasian armies
              and the support of the Saxons and the Lombards, Dagobert
              overwhelms the Wendes [Slavic resident of the area between
              the Oder, the Elbe and the superior branch of the Danube] at Wogalisbourg
              (in Styria, near Gratz) in 632]. He fought the
              Gascons, the Slavs and the Saxons. He was the last direct
              Merovingien King, he was able to delay the dissolution of
              the Frankish Empire. In December of 638, Dagobert is
              stricken with an intestinal disease in his domaine of
              Epinay-sur-Seine, and trusts his Mayor of Neustria, Aega,
              the fate of his wife Nanthilde as well as that of his son
              Clovis II. On 19 January 639, Dagobert has himself
              transported to Saint-Denis, where he dies in one of the
              buildings adjoing the Basilica. He is the first Monarch of
              France to have chosen Saint-Denis as the final restiing
              place. It is there that Saint Denis was martyred in the
              third century, along with his companions Saint Rustique and
              Saint Eleuthere. In the fifth century, the Gallo-Roman
              cemetery was levelled and the basilica built. Married before
              626: Gomatrude; Gomatrude was the first of five
              wives. Married before 629: Ragnetrud d'Austrasie;
              Ragnetrud was the third of Dagobert I's five wives. Married
              before 634: Nantechild. Died: in 639.



              greatest of the Merovingian Kings

              From
              Imperium. Joe Shetler at: shetler@ghgcorp.com, World Wide Web: Available: [Online]:
              (http://www.ghg.net/shetler/oldimp/087.html) [2 December 2002].

              In 623, Dagobert's father, Chlotar II, King of the Franks, made him king of Austrasia to please the leading Austrasian nobles: Mayor of the Palace Pepin I and Saint Arnulf, Bishop of Metz. When Chlotar died in 629, Dagobert became sole King of the Franks, and he moved his capital from Austrasia to Paris. Later, Dagobert left the council of Pepin for a more flexible Neustrian Mayor of the Palace. In 632, he was forced to put his three-year old son Sigebert on the throne of Austrasia as the nobles were in revolt, however Pepin was not made his Mayor of the Palace. The Neustrian nobles then wished to unite with Burgundy, and so they urged Dagobert to put his son Clovis II as king of both those kingdoms, although he was only 5 years old and could be easily manipulated by the nobles. When Dagobert died in 639, the nobles of the kingdoms controlled both his sons, now puppet kings.

              "fell ill near Epernay, and was brought to St. Denis to die"
              near his favorite estate, Clichy
              of Austrasia, and of France, The last strong Merovingian
              monarch was the son of Clotaire II, Dagobert I, who ruled from
              629 to 639. Under his numerous
              successors the Frankish kingdom became decentralized. Royal
              power gradually gave way to the noble families who exercised
              feudal control over most of the land. The most important of
              these families was the Carolingian. The Carolingians held the
              office of mayor of the palace and after 639 were kings in all
              but name. In 751 the Carolingian mayor of the palace deposed
              the reigning king, Childeric III (reigned about 743-751), and
              assumed royal power himself as Pepin the Short, putting an end
              to the Merovingian dynasty.
