About Basinus II, king of the Thüringians

Ben M. Angel notes: A user proposed Zülpich as the death location. This apparently was the location of a major battle in either 496 or 506 between the Franks and the Alemannii (the Battle of Tolbiac), in which the Alemannii were defeated. However, there was no participation by the Thuringii, a barbarian people that had Basinus as their king. As this appears to be a mix-up between barbarian people histories, I've deleted the reference on his death location, and placed it within the confines of his kingdom - more likely to be accurate

According to Gregory of Tours, he supplied refuge from Childeric I, the Frankish king who was exiled by his own people. His wife, Basina, left him for Childeric and the two returned to Tournai together, after eight years.

The historical Bisinus bears some resemblance to the Bisinus of Gregory, but the details are different. Bisinus was the leader of a Thuringian confederation on the Rhine and his wife was a Lombard named Menia. He left three sons, Baderic, Herminafred, and Berthachar, who inherited the throne from him. His daughter Radegund married the Lombard king Wacho.


From the (poorly written) Wikipedia page on Bisinus:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisinus

Bisinus, Basinus, Besinus, or Bisin (Lombardic: Pisen) was the king of the Thuringii (fl. c. 460 – 506/510).

According to Gregory of Tours, he supplied refuge from Childeric I, the Frankish king who was exiled by his own people. His wife, Basina, left him for Childeric and the two returned to Tournai together, after eight years.

His daughter Radegund married the Lombard king Wacho.

(According to the Wikipedia page of his son, Hermanfrid, the royal seat of Thuringia was at Scithingi, or present Burgscheidungen.)


Bisinus was our ancestor through two distinct lines of descent--through his son Baderic and his son Hermanafrid, each of whom was independently our ancestor.

After a vicious battle near Tournai, he and Childeric, went into seclusion. It's here that his wife Basina leaves him and returns to Belgium with Childeric.
