About Arnoaldus, Bishop of Metz

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arnoald, also called Arnoldus or Arnual (ca 560 – ca 611), was a Bishop of Metz between 601 and 609 or 611, the successor of Agilulf, and a Margrave of Schelde. He was the son of Ansbertus, a Senator, and wife Blithilde.

Married before 584 to Oda (?), born ca 564. Scholars looking to replace the traditions that would make Arnulf of Metz the son of Arnould have proposed alternative relationships between Arnoald and the Carolingians. Proposed solutions would make him father of one of the following:

  • Saint Itta, married to Pippin of Landen
  • Dode or Doda, who became a nun in 612 at Treves becoming called also Clothilde of Treves, born ca 584, married ca 596 to Arnulf of Metz

Father of St. Arnulf of Metz

It is a subject of much debate among genealogists whether or not Arnoald is the father of Arnulf bishop of Metz, who, according to Christian Settipani's early publications, is a perfect candidate. Settipani contradicts himself in newer publications, stating that Arnulf of Metz couldn't have been Arnoald's son given to no mention of the former having any royal blood. Further speculation indicate Arnulf's father could be a Bodegisel, based on documents from old Frankish legends. This statement is also uncertain. He states instead that Arnoald was Arnulf's father in law.

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnoul_de_Metz (zoon)

Diverses sources tardives, comme une hagiographie de Clou de Metz du viiie siècle ou une généalogie rédigée sous Charles le Chauve, indiquent que le père d'Arnoul (Arnulf) s'appelait Arnoald ou Ansoald et son père Ansbert.

Un ancien manuscrit, retrouvé dans l'abbaye de Longeville-lès-Metz indique ainsi que Ansbert aurait été envoyé par l'empereur Justinien comme ambassadeur auprès du roi Clotaire II et que là il y aurait épousé Blitilde, prétendue fille du roi mérovingien. De leur union naquirent quatre enfants dont l'ainé Arnoald était le père d'Arnoul. L'authenticité de ce mariage à fait l'objet d'intenses polémiques au xviie siècle mais il est aujourd'hui admis que ces récits sont apocryphes et ont été créés dans un but politique, pour affirmer la légitimité de la maison de Lorraine1.

Arnoald, also called Arnoldus or Arnual (ca 560 – ca 611), was (the 25th) Bishop of Metz between 601/603 and 609/611, the successor of Agilulf, and a Margrave of Schelde. He was the son of Ansbertus, a Senator, and wife Blithilde. (As such, French Wikipedia lists his nationality as "Gallo-Roman". Feast day is April 17.)

Married before 584 to Oda (?), born ca 564. (French Wikipedia says: "Tradition attributes to him a wife named Oda, but this is the result of confusion from the middle ages. Two traditions about the father of St. Arnulf existed, one that suggests that St. Arnulf is a holy Bodogisel, with a wife named Oda. Aegidius Orval tried to reconcile the two traditions by making Arnoald and Bodogisel the same person." Therefore, French Wikipedia asserts that the wife's name is unknown.)

(French Wikipedia says: "Very little is known from contemporaraneous documents. He is cited in 616 in a testament of St. Bertrand, Bishop of Le Mans, who despised him and fails to mention his acting as bishop with his uncle Agilulf. Arnoald is said to have stolen property belonging to the church of Le Mans.")

(In 783, Paul Deacon writes in the Liber de Episcoporum Mettensium: "Agiulf is said to have a father from a noble family of senators and a mother who is the daughter of King Chlodoveus. After him came his nephew Arnoald. He was succeeded by Pappolus. Arnoald, from a very noble and powerful strain of the Franks, begot two sons in lawful matrimony: Anchises and Chlodoul.")

(A 12th century tradition has Arnoald as the founder of the Abbey of St. Arnulf von Merkingen. The lands which were the domain of the abbey were sold to him by King of Austrasia Theodobert II. This is currently an area of Saarbrucken called St. Arnual Markt.)

Scholars looking to replace the traditions that would make Arnulf of Metz the son of Arnould have proposed alternative relationships between Arnoald and the Carolingians.

(According to French Wikipedia: At the beginning of the 19th century, Claude Philippe de Viville proposed the dates of his term as bishop as 599-609. The analysis of charters, catalogs, and episcopal confrontations set within the historical constraints made by Jorg Jamut shows the bishop's term to be 603-611. This confirms the tradition that claims Arnoald was bishop for 8 years and 1 month. But the death of Agilulf, predecessor to Anoald, took place in 601.)

Proposed solutions would make him father of one of the following:

1. Saint Itta, married to Pippin of Landen 2. Dode or Doda, who became a nun in 612 at Treves/Trier becoming called also Clothilde of Treves, born ca 584, married ca 596 to Arnulf of Metz

Father of St. Arnulf of Metz

It is a subject of much debate among genealogists whether or not Arnoald is the father of Arnulf bishop of Metz, who, according to Christian Settipani's early publications, is a perfect candidate.

Settipani contradicts himself in newer publications, stating that Arnulf of Metz couldn't have been Arnoald's son given to no mention of the former having any royal blood. Further speculation indicate Arnulf's father could be a Bodegisel, based on documents from old Frankish legends. This statement is also uncertain. He states instead that Arnoald was Arnulf's father in law.

(French Wikipedia says: "The first mention of Arnoald's ancestry is given by Paul Deacon, who says he was the nephew of his predecessor Agilulf, making him the son of a daughter of Clovis. The pedigrees established by the diocese of Metz from 810, as listed in the Commemoratio genealogiae domni Karoli gloriossimi imperatoris gives him as the son of Ansbert and Bilichide, the latter a daughter of King Clotaire I, and adds that he is the father of St. Arnulf, ancestor of the Carolingians. Recent analysis of these traditions confirms the name of his parents and uncle, but rejects the relationship with King Clotaire I, correcting Clovis to Chloderic, and considers Arnoald not the father, but the stepfather of St. Arnaulf.)
