About Siegbert I, King of the Franks at Cologne

HE WAS NOT THE FATHER OF CLOVIS I

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigebert_the_Lame

Sigobert the Lame (also Sigibert or Sigebert, d. ca. 509) was a king of the Franks in the area of Zülpich (Latin: Tolbiac) and Cologne.

He was presumably wounded at the knee at the Battle of Tolbiac against the Alamanni.

According to Gregory of Tours, he was murdered by his son Chlodoric upon the instigation of Clovis I, sometime after his victory on the Visigoths (507). Clovis then accused Chlodoric of murder and had him killed in his turn. In this way Clovis became king of Sigobert's and Chlodoric's people.

Gregory suggests that Chlodoric was murdered in the same campaign that also killed the Frankish King Chararic. Before, Clovis had killed Ragnachar and his brothers. After all these murders Gregory tells us that Clovis lamented that he had left no family anymore, implying that amongst his own casualties were close relatives.

Roi de Cologne en 496-508

Sigebert le Boiteux et son fils Clodéric (Francs Rhénans)

Clovis avait sauvé Sigebert le Boiteux de l'invasion des Alamans l'année de Tolbiac (496) . Clodéric, fils de Sigebert, avait aidé Clovis à conquérir l'Aquitaine (Wisigoths 507). Le royaume des Francs Rhénans n'était point subordonné à Clovis , mais dans l'orbite Franque. C'était un vaste et riche royaume dont il est malaisé de fixer les limites, sa capitale était Cologne, sa population était païenne et en 508, le roi Sigebert fut assassiné … mais revenons à l' histoire.

Pendant que Clovis séjournait à Paris il envoya en secret dire au fils de Sigebert " ton père vieillit et il boite, s'il mourait, son royaume te reviendrait de droit ainsi que notre amitié ". Séduit dans sa cupidité, ce dernier entreprit de tuer son père. Celui ci, ayant quitté la cour de Cologne et franchit le Rhin, se disposait à traverser la forêt de Buchau, fut tué pendant son sommeil dans sa tente. Clodéric envoya donc des messagers au roi Clovis pour lui annoncer la mort de son père. " mon père est mort et j'ai en ma possession ses trésors avec son royaume, envoie-moi tes gens et je leur remettrai de bon gré ce qu'il te plaît de prendre de ces trésors ". Clovis accepta et dès l'arrivée des envoyés, Clodéric étala les trésors de son père. Or pendant qu'il se pencha pour prendre une poignée du trésor, l'un des hommes, ayant levé la main, lui fracassa le crâne de sa hache. Clovis apprenant la mort de Sigebert et son fils, se rendit sur les lieux et dit au peuple "ralliez-vous à moi afin d' être sous ma protection " Entendant ces paroles, ceux qui était là applaudirent et ils le choisirent pour roi en l' élevant sur un pavois. Ayant reçut le royaume de Sigebert et ses trésors, il les soumit aussi à sa domination.

-------------------- King Siegbert "the Lame" of Cologne sired his own murderer. In 509 he was murdered by his son, Cloderic "the Parracide," at the instigation of King Clovis I of the Franks (who then went on to murder Cloderic, too). Fortunately for you, Cloderic had already passed on the DNA to his own son Munderic, whose DNA contributed to you. -------------------- Laurel Logan

Mördad av sin egen son på inrådan av Clovis I, kung av theFranks .

Känd under smeknamnet " lama " , han var en av flera frankishkings , hans rike är i Rhenlandet . När CLOVIS wasconsolidating sin makt som ensam kung över frankerna, Sigibert wasprobably hans starkaste rival. Det verkar som om två kungen var onfriendly villkor. Sigebert son, CLODERIC , även slogs med CLOVIS inhis kampanj mot visigoterna .

Medan CLODERIC wasselecting sin belöning från sin fars skattkista , dela en av CLOVIS'Franks hans skalle med en yxa .

Selon Grégoire de Tours, il meurt assassiné par son propre fils, à l'instigation de Clovis, dans la forêt de Buconia, qu'on suppose située près de Cologne.

Son royaume constitue un noyau de la future Austrasie.
