About Bodegisel I, King of Aquitaine

Boggis in English Wikipedia

Boggis, Bohggis, or Bodogisel (died circa 660) was the Duke of Aquitaine from the death of Chilperic of Aquitaine in 632 until his death.

His origins are not well known, but some suppose him to have been a son of Charibert II based on the spurious Charte d'Alaon.

Nicholas' Vita Landberti episcopi Traiectensis records him as "the recently deceased duke of Aquitaine" when referring to his widow Oda as a friend of Lambert. He is presumed to have married her around 645.

On Chilperic's death, the Aquitainians rebelled and elected Boggis duke. That same year, the Gascons rebelled. King Dagobert I sent an army under the command of Chandoina, who achieved a partial victory on the Soule, killing the Gascon leader Arimbert and several other lesser generals. After a few reprisals, Dagobert nominated the Saxon Aighyna as dux Vasconum: he would protect Gascon autonomy, while remaining amenable to Frankish overlordship. Boggis continued to rule semi-autonomously in Aquitaine.

It is possible that Boggis was the father or uncle of Hubertus, Odo the Great and Imitarius. He is also credited as the brother of a later duke named Bertrand. However, none of Boggis' relatives are known and all suppositions are based on the fake Charte.
