About Childéric III, King of the Franks

He was King of the Franks (743-deposed 751). He was the last of the Merovingian kings. His parentage is uncertain, but he is thought to have been a son of Chilpéric II. He was raised to the throne and later deposed by the Mayor of the Palace, Pépin the Short. His long hair, the Mervovingian badge of royalty, was shorn, and he was put in a monastery.

The English-language Wikipedia assumes Childeric to be the son of Theuderic IV, but the German Wikipedia claims that he is the son of Chilperic II.
