About Childebert III the Adopted, king of Austrasia

Childebert III the Adopted (Childebertus Adoptivus) was a Frankish king. According to the Liber Historiae Francorum Childebert was a son of the Mayor of the Palace Grimoald the Elder. He was thus a grandson of Pepin of Landen. He was adopted by King Sigebert III and Queen Chimnechild. The story has been challenged by some modern historians. Christian Settipani has suggested Childbert was in fact a son of Sigebert but was adopted by Grimoald.

Sources point to Martin of Laon as son of Childebert
