About Childebrand I, Lord of Perracy and Bougy

CHILDEBRAND (-after 751, maybe after 762). Childebrand is described as "germanus" of Charles "Martel" by the Continuator of Fredegar, in the part which Childebrand himself sponsored[183]. There are three possibilities for the precise parentage of Childebrand: (1) he was the illegitimate son of Pépin "le Gros" by an unknown mistress; (2) he was Pépin’s second son by his second [wife] Chalpais; or (3) he was the son of Chalpais by an earlier marriage. Settipani discusses in detail the arguments in favour of each of these three cases[184]. Each case has its defender, but there appears no way of deciding which is the most likely, especially given the uncertain interpretation of relationship terms such as "germanus" in contemporary sources. Count in Burgundy, Duke in Provence 737/39. A charter dated Apr 754 records a claim by “Fulchardus advocatus...Nivelongo comiti” before “Theoderico comiti” relating to property “in pago Augustidunense in villa Balgiaco...de villa Patriciaco” granted to “Hildebranno” by “Karolus”[185]. Historian, he was the author of part of the continuations of the chronicle of Fredegar written during the reign of King Pépin (751-768).] m ---. The name of Childebrand’s wife is not known. Childebrand & his wife had one child:

a) NIBELUNG ([705/20]-before 786). The Continuator of Fredegar names Nibelung as son of Childebrand, specifying that he assumed his father's work on the chronicle after the latter died[186]. An approximate birth date range of [705/20] is assigned to Nibelung for the purposes only of narrowing the possible birth date ranges of his supposed descendants.

The following tale is told of Charles and of the origins of his name: in 686, Pippin II and his wife Plectrude were talking together in a room when they were intruded upon by a messenger, bringing news that the Mayor's mistress, Alpaida, had given birth to a son at Herstal.The messenger, fearful of arousing the wrath of Plectrude, decided not to announce the news directly. Instead, he said: "Long live the king, it is a carl" ('man'). Pippin, equally cautious of his wife, dismissed the messenger as follows: "A carl, is it? Then let him be called that." This was done, and, so legend claims, the child was named "Carl". Alpaida also bore Pippin another son, Childebrand.

Map: The Frankish kingdoms at the time of the death of Pepin of Heristal. Note that Aquitaine (yellow) was outside of Arnulfing authority and Neustria and Burgundy (pink) were united in opposition to further Arnulfing dominance of the highest offices. Only Austrasia (green) supported an Arnulfing mayor, first Theudoald then Charles. Note that the German duchies to the east of the Rhine were de facto outside of Frankish suzerainty at this time.


Childebrand I was Count in Bourgogne. He married UNKNOWN before 720. He was Duke at Provence from 731.
