About Chrotlind d'Austrasie

Chrotlind might have been a daughter of Théodéric III (de Vajay, Chaume & Kelley), although she is not named by Schwennicke or Isenburg. However, the identity of her mother is disputed.

  1. Maurice Chaume says her mother was Théodéric's wife Chrothildis (Études carolingiennes I: La famille de saint Guillaume de Gellone).
  2. Prof. David Kelley says, "In fact, I have found a considerable amount of data suggesting that Chrotlind, the mother of the Count Theuderic of 720, was indeed the daughter of Theuderic III (by his wife Saint Amalaberga) and was the wife of Lantpert and mother of Rotpert, ancestor of the Robertins. This material involves considerations of onomastics, property inheritance, and the sometimes dubious texts of the lives of the Frankish saints, and is both too involved and too extensive to present here...." (David H. Kelley, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail: Two Reviews").
