[Blessed Pepin of Landen (AC) (also known as Pippin)
Died February 21, c. 639. Pepin was, perhaps, the most important, powerf ul person in the empire during his age. As duke of Brabant and mayor of t he palace (first minister) of kings Clotaire II, Dagobert I, and Sigebe rt III, he determined much of the policy of the Franks. Pepin, the ancest or of the Carolingian dynasty of French kings, was the husband of Bless ed Itta and father of Grimoald, of Saint Gertrude of Nivelles and of Sai nt Begga. He is described as "a lover of peace and the constant defend er of truth and justice," though it may not seem that way at first glance.
Pepin and Bishop Arnulf of Metz aided King Clotaire II of Neustria in over throwing Queen Brunhilda of Austrasia in 613. In recognition of the import ant roles they played, Clotaire appointed them mayors of the palace to ru le Austrasia for Clotaire's son Dagobert I from 623. When Pepin rebuked Da gobert (who had succeeded his father about 629) for his licentious life, D agobert discharged him and he retired to Aquitaine. Dagobert still respect ed him enough to appoint him tutor of his three-year-old son Sigebert befo re his death in 638, and Pepin returned and ruled the kingdom until his o wn death the following year.
Pepin worked to spread the faith throughout the kingdom, defended Christi an towns from Slavic invaders, and chose responsible men to fill vacant se es. The marriage of his daughter, Begga, and Bishop Arnulf's son, Segisliu s, produced Pepin of Herstal, the first of the Carolingian dynasty in Fran ce. Pepin of Landen was buried at Landen, but his relics were later transl ated to Nivelle, where they are now enshrined with those of his wife and d aughter Gertrude. Here is feast is kept. Pepin was never canonized b ut is listed as a saint in some of the old Belgic martyrologies and a lita ny published by the authority of the archbishop of Mechlin (Benedictine s, Delaney, Encyclopedia, Husenbeth).
