Descendance

Les invasions barbares du ve siècle ne font pas disparaître d’un coup, les structures romaines de l’Occident. Les barbares ne représentent en effet que 5% de la population de l’Occident [7]. L’interdiction des mariages mixtes par les Francs montre la peur de perdre leur identité. D’ailleurs leurs unions avec des femmes gallo-romaines restent relativement rares. Elles sont plus fréquentes avec les autres peuples qui envahissent l’empire. Les enfants de Tonance II Ferréol et d’Industrie de Narbonne, sont [8]:

1. probablement un fils peut-être nommé Ferréol, et sénateur dans la région de Narbonne, marié à une fille de Chlodéric, roi de Cologne [9], et père de : Ansbert, sénateur gallo-romain, se dévoue à la cause des rois d’Austrasie. Des généalogies carolingiennnes datant du ixe siècle lui attribuent pour épouse Bilichilde [10], fille de Clotaire Ier, mais cette parenté royale n'est plus prise en compte de nos jours [11].

1a. Agilulf, évêque de Metz de 591 à 601. 1b. Babon 1c. Déotaire, premier évêque d'Arisitum en 591. 1d. Ragenfred.

Progeny

The barbarian invasions of the 5th century did not destroy all at once the structures of the western Roman Empire. The barbarians themselves represented only 5 percent of the population of the western parts of the empire [7]. The prohibition of intermarriage by the Franks shows a fear of losing their identity. In any case, relations between Franks and Gallo-Roman women remained relatively rare. They were more common with other people who invaded the empire.

The children of Tonance II Ferreolus and (Unknown) d'Industrie of Narbonne were [8]:

1. Probably a son, possibly named Ferreolus, who was senator for the region of Narbonne, who married a daughter of Chloderic, King of Cologne [9], and was the father of:

1a. Ansbert, Gallo-Roman senator who supported the cause of the Kings of Austrasia. Carolingian pedigrees dating from the 9th century ascribe as his wife Bilichilde [10], daughter of Clotaire I, but this connection to the royal family is no longer taken into account [11]. 1b. Agilulf, Bishop of Metz (591-601) 1c. Babon 1d. Deotaire, first Bishop of Arisitum (591) 1e. Ragenfred

2. Firmin d'Uzes, fourth bishop of Uzes (507/516-553)

3. Fadence, father of:

3a. St. Ferreol, 5th Bishop of Uzes (553-581)[12]

Ferreolus, Senator of Narbonne, father of the Gallo-Roman Senator Ansbertus[8]

Settipani here cites Paul the Deacon in his work on the Bishops of Metz where Agilulf, Bishop of Metz, brother of Ansbert and uncle of Arnoald Bishop of Metz, was referred to as the "son of a senator". Metz was in the Kingdom of Austrasia and Austrasia controlled Provence which included Uzes.

Although Tonantius Ferreolus who was attested at Narbo likely took the side of the Goths before the death of Alaric II, by the mid 6th century his family had clearly relocated to within Frankish territory which began west of Uzes and extended West. Nîmes, just to the south and a little west of Uzes was in Visigothic hands until the Arab capture in the 8th century.

Settipani, based on his reading of Paul the Deacon and the fact that the name Ferreolus was associated with the name Ansbert in two Autun Bishops (19 and 15 rspectively) in a Burgundian see that was regarded as both being hereditary and having ties with the Syagri-Ferreoli, was persuaded apparently to accept the slightly confused 9th century account stating that the senator in question was a "Ferreolus."

Settipani suggests this Ferreolus tentatively as a son of Tonantius Ferreolus and Industria. Settipani further suggests that this son married to a daughter of Frankish Ripuarian Royal house which had survived through the clemency of Theoderic of Austrasia who was thought to have been a son of Clovis' 1st wife, an unattested daughter of Sigebert, the penultimate Ripuarian Frankish king. Kelley had come to the same or a similar conclusion in 1947 [9] but it appears from those who cite him that the original idea was that Ansbertus was a son of Tonantius Ferreolus and not a grandson. -------------------- Also called Tonance Ferréol.3 Tonantius II Ferreolus, sénateur Narbonne was connected with the Aviti through his mother, Papianilla.4 He was born say 450. He was the son of Tonantius I Ferreolus, praefectus praetorio Galliarum and Papianille, clarissima femina. He was on the estates of his father when Sidonius Appolinarius visited. As Sidonius relates, "at Prusianum, as the other [estate] is called, [the young] Tonantius and his brothers turned out of their beds for us because we could not be always dragging our gear about: they are surely the elect among the nobles of our own age" between 461 and 467.5 He was present in 469 in Rome, Italy. He married Industria of Narbonne, daughter of Flavius Probus and Eulalie (?), before 475.6 He was again present in 475 in Rome, Italy. Senator of Narbonne in Gaul between 479 and 517.3,6 Vir clarissimus between 507 and 511.6 He was visited by his cousin St. Apollinaris of Valence in 517.6 He died after 517. -------------------- Note: Duke of the Moselle and Margrave of the Schelde, m. (1) a dau. foClovis, I, King of France, and m (2) Deuteria, a Roman Lady, and hadby his second wife, Ausbert. (YFT, p. 67).
