About Mérovech d'Orléans

After his father's death, Mérovech and his brothers were captured by their cousin Chlothar II, who had two of the brothers killed. However, Chlothar had a great affection for Mérovic, whom he had received as a baby from the baptismal font. Therefore, Chlothar placed Mérovic in the care of Ingobad, and secretly sent him to Neustria, where he lived for many years.
