About Regintrude des Burgondes

Regintrud (also Reginlind and Regentrud), (b. 660-665 d. 730-740) is something of an enigma.

The sources quoted by Schreibner indicate that the records show a Regentrud as the sister of Adela of Pfalzel and daughter of king Dagobert I.

This is supported by the following:

Another Regentrud being listed in the tradition book of the Nonnberg Abbey as regentrudis regina (marking her a Merovingian princess) The names of her sons, through her marriage to duke Theodo of Bavaria, are also Merowingian, that is, from the families of Regentrud and Adela According to these sources, 8th century witnesses only mention Folchaid as the wife of Theodo.

The supposition that queen Regintrud, the benefactor of the abbey founded by Rupert of Salzburg and Theodo mentioned above, must therefore be the wife of Theodo, is attributed to the 15th century historians Suntheim and Aventin.

As an alternative explanation, the sources suggest that Regintrud was the queen of Theudebert, who may have had his support of the abbey attributed instead to his late father, Theodo.

After the death of Theudebert, another Regentrud entered the Nonnberg Abbey and later became abbess in 720-725. This is listed in the Salzburger Verbrüderungsbuch in 784. Assuming the abbess Regentrud and queen Regentrud are one in the same, she may have entered the abbey on her husbands death.

This could explain why the name of Theudeberts wife is excluded in the communion book of St. Peter in respect for her position as abbess. However, much of this is mere speculation based on the individuals named being one in the same.

The following lineages have been suggested:

Daughter of the Seneschal (and Pfalzgraf) Hugobert and Irmina of Oeren. Daughter of Dagobert I Daughter of Childebert III

Children of Regintrud and first husband

Pilitrud

Children of Regintrud and Treudebert

Hugbert of Bavaria, heir to the duchy Swanachild, wife of Charles Martel Guntrud, wife of Liutprand

-------------------- Alternate birth location: Franconia, Germany --------------------

Nanthild (c. 610 – 642) (also known as Nantéchilde, Nanthechilde, Nanthildis, Nanthilde, or Nantechildis) was the third of many wives of Dagobert I, king of the Franks (629-639).

She was of Saxon lineage, born about 608 or 610. The Lexikon des Mittelalters calls her ein Mädchen aus dem Dienstpersonal ("a maiden of the royal [ Austrasian ] household"). Her elevation to consort may have given importance to her relatives: her brother Lanthegisel was an important landowner in the Limousin and a relation of Aldegisel. Dagobert set aside his wife Gomatrud to marry her, ca. 629; to her was born Clovis II, second eldest of Dagobert's surviving sons and the one who succeeded him in Neustria and Burgundy. After Dagobert's death in January 639, she was initially regent for her son, accompanied by Aega, mayor of the Neustrian palace and an opponent of the powerful contingent of nobles headed by Burgundofaro whose seat was at Meaux.

In the interest of reducing noble Burgundian independence of the Merovingian palace, she married her niece Ragnoberta to the Frank Flaochad and had the magnates and bishops of the realm of Burgundy acclaim him mayor of the palace at Orléans in 642. Soon she died at Landry in what was then Burgundy, where she had long resided; her body was translated to the Saint Denis Basilica. Her untimely death allowed her son to fall under the influence of the nobility, who abhorred a strong royal hand.
