About Drogo (Dreux), duc de Champagne et Bourgogne

Drogo (670–708), son of Pepin the Middle and Plectrude, was the duke of Champagne by appointment of his father in 690 and duke of Burgundy from the death of Nordebert in 697. He was the mayor of the palace of Burgundy from 695.

He married Anstrude, the daughter of Ansflede and Waratton, the former mayor of the palace of Neustria and Burgundy, and also the widow of the mayor of the palace Berthar. They had four sons:

  1. Hugh,
  2. Arnulf (c.690–c.721),
  3. Godfrey, and
  4. Pepin.

Drogo predeceased his father and left the duchy of Champagne to his second-eldest son Arnulf, as the first born Hugh had entered a monastery. Drogo is buried in Metz in Saint-Pierre-aux-Nonnains.

Biographie[modifier le code]

Il est nommé duc de Champagne en 690, puis duc des Bourguignons après 697. Il meurt au printemps de l'année 708 et son père le fait inhumer dans l'abbaye Saint-Arnoul de Metz2,3.

Mariage et enfants[modifier le code]

Dans le but de se concilier la noblesse de la Neustrie, son père le marie avec Adaltrude, fille de Berchaire, ancien maire du palais de Neustrie de 686 à 687, et d'Anstrude, elle-même fille de Waratton, également maire du palais de Neustrie de 680 à 6864,5, lequel était probablement apparenté à Ebroïn, maire du palais de Neustrie de 658 à 6806.

De ce mariage sont nés quatre enfants7 :

  • Arnulf († 723), cité comme duc en 704 et en 723 quand il se révolte contre Charles Martel,
  • Hugues († 730), abbé de Saint-Denis, de Fontenelle et de Jumièges, archevêque de Rouen en 719, évêque de Paris et de Bayeux en 723.
  • Pépin († 723), cité avec ses frères dans une charte de 715 et en 723 quand il se révolte contre Charles Martel.
  • Godefried, cité avec ses frères dans une charte de 715 et en 723 quand il se révolte contre Charles Martel
