About Childebert III "the Just", King of the Franks

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childebert_III

Koning Childebert III (koning van 695 - 711), ook Childebert IV genoemd om hem te onderscheiden van Childebert de Geadopteerde, was de zoon van Theuderik III. Hij volgde zijn broer Clovis IV na diens overlijden op. De hofmeier Pepijn van Herstal oefende de macht uit in zijn naam, over Neustrië en Bourgondië. Vanaf koning Clovis IV begonnen de hofmeiers daadwerkelijk te regeren in 's konings naam. Hiermede komen de verhalen van de "Vadsige of luie koningen". Zij namen het gemakkelijk op en lieten hun "eerste minister" eigenlijk, regeren. Childebert III werd opgevolgd door zijn zoon Dagobert III.

Childebert III, called the Just (French: le Juste) (670 or probably 683 – 23 April 711), son of Theuderic III and Clotilda (or Doda) and sole king of the Franks (695–711), he was seemingly but a puppet of the mayor of the palace, Pepin of Heristal, though his placita show him making judicial decisions of his own will, even against the Arnulfing clan. His nickname has no comprehensible justification except possibly as a result of these judgements, for the Liber Historiae Francorum calls him a "famous man" and "a just man of good memory".

He had a son named Dagobert, who succeeded him, as Dagobert III but his wife was not Edonne, the invention of later fantasists. It is possible, though not likely, that Clotaire IV was also his son. He spent almost his entire life in a royal villa on the Oise.

It was during his reign of sixteen years that, in 708, the bishop of Avranches, Saint Aubert, founded, at the urging of the Archangel Michael, the monastery of Mont-Saint-Michel.

Upon his death on April 23, 711, southern Gaul began to grow independent: Burgundy under Bishop Savaric of Auxerre, Aquitaine under Duke Odo the Great, and Provence under Antenor. He was buried in the church of St Stephen at Choisy-au-Bac, near Compiègne.

Childebert III (Childebert the Just) was king of France. He was born about 683 and died in 711. He was the son of Thierry I, king of the Franks, and was proclaimed king in 695, on the death of his brother, Clovis III. His kingship, however, was merely nominal, the true sovereign being Pepin le Gros or d'Heristal, who, under the title of Mayor of the Palace, exercised the real authority. He was thus one of those Merovingian kings who, from their incapacity, received the appellation of rois faineants, or sluggard kings.
