About Carétène or Agrippina de Burgondie

There is some confusion around the names and ancestries of Chilperic's two wives. His first wife is said to have been Caratene, daughter of Gundicar and mother of St. Clothilda. His second is said to be a sister of Ricimer, not a daughter. Clothilda was the younger of the two daughters, so they must both have been children of Chilperic's first wife Caratene.

FMG says: The name of Chilperich´s wife is not known. Gregory of Tours records that Chilperich's wife was drowned by her brother-in-law King Gundobad, after he tied a stone around her neck. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records the same event.

FMG: An epitaph to "Caretenes religiosiæ reginæ", referring to her burial "Lugduni in basilica sancti Michahelis", is included in the compilation of the works of Avitus Bishop of Vienne [Alcimi Ecdicii Aviti Viennensis episcopi Opera quæ superunt, MGH Auct ant VI.2, Epitaphium VI, p. 185.].  It is not clear from the edition consulted whether this epitaph was the bishop's own composition: clearly not all the epitaphs included could have been written by him as some relate to individuals whose deaths are recorded elsewhere in the second half of the 6th century.  If the epitaph is contemporary with Bishop Avitus, then it presumably refers to the wife of King Gondebaud, to whom Avitus wrote many times, although this is not specified in the text.  It can safely be assumed that she was Catholic.  The text does not reveal any indication of the date of her death, although "506" is added in the margin of the edition without any indication of the basis.


Cartamene Walia was born about 430 in France. She married 1 Gondobad Gondioc de Bourgogne King of Burgundy about 447 in France.

[Notes]

They had the following children:

  F i Daughter of Gondobad de Bourgogne 
  M ii Childeric II de Bourgogne King of Burgundy 
  M iii Godogisel de Bourgogne King of Geneva

In 486 (or 493?) Gundobad assassinated Chilperic and drowned his wife, then exiled Chilperic's two daughters, Chroma, who became a nun, and Clotilda, who fled to her uncle, Godegisel.

There is some confusion around the names and ancestries of Chilperic's two wives. His first wife is said to have been Caratene, daughter of Gundicar and mother of St. Clothilda. His second is said to be a sister of Ricimer, not a daughter. Clothilda was the younger of the two daughters, so they must both have been children of Chilperic's first wife Caratene.

FMG says: The name of Chilperich´s wife is not known.  Gregory of Tours records that Chilperich's wife was drowned by her brother-in-law King Gundobad, after he tied a stone around her neck. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records the same event.

Note from Justin Swanström: I wonder whether the idea that Chilperic's second wife (Agrippina?) was a sister of Ricimir might be a jumble resulting from the secondary sources that say (a) Ricimir was a son of Rechila of the Suevi, (b) Rechila had a daughter Cartamena, and (c) Cartamena married Gunderic of Burgundy. A healthy dose of skepticism seems to be required here.
