About Chlodomir I, King the Franks at Orléans

CHLODOVECH [Clovis] ([464/67]-Paris [27 Nov] 511, bur Paris, basilique des Saints-Apôtres [later église de Sainte-Geneviève]). m [secondly] (492) CHROTECHILDIS [Clotilde/Rotilde[48]] of Burgundy, daughter of CHILPERICH King of Burgundy & his wife --- ([480]-Tours, monastery of Saint-Martin 544 or 548, bur Paris, basilique des Saints-Apôtres [later église de Sainte-Geneviève]).

CHLODOMER ([494/95]-killed in battle Vézeronce 21 Jun 524). Gregory of Tours names Chlodomer as second son of King Clovis and his wife Clotilde[102]. "Theodorico, Chlomiro, Hildeberto, Hlodario" are named (in order) as sons of "Chlodoveus" in the Regum Merowingorum Genealogia[103]. He succeeded his father in 511 as CHLODOMER King of the Franks, at Orléans, his territory covering the Loire valley from Orléans to Tour, Chartres, Sens and Auxerre. Gregory of Tours records that Chlodomer's mother incited him to attack Burgundy to revenge the death of her parents. He defeated and captured Sigismond King of Burgundy in his first invasion, but was defeated and killed by Sigismond's brother Gondemar during a second invasion[104]. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records that "Chlodomiris" led an army into Burgundy against "Godmarum", a marginal additional recording that "Gladmirus filius Clodovei regis Francorum" was killed during the course of the attack[105]. m ([514] or 521) as her first husband, GUNTHEUCA [Gondioque], daughter of - [King of Burgundy]. Gregory of Tours names Guntheuc as widow of King Chlodomer and records her second marriage with his brother Clotaire, but does not give her origin[106]. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records that "Chlotharius" married "uxorem fratris sui…Gundeucam"[107]. Settipani suggests, for onomastic reasons only, that she may have belonged to the Burgundian royal family which, if correct, means that she may have been the daughter of either King Gondebaud or his brother Godogisel[108]. However, Gregory makes no mention of this in his lengthy description of King Chlodomer's campaigns in Burgundy, an omission which is surprising if the king’s wife was related to his opponents. She married secondly ([524]) as his first wife, Clotaire I [Chlothachar/Lothar] King of the Franks. King Chlodomer & his wife had three children: MEDLANDS

a) THEODEBALD ([521]-murdered Paris 531, bur Paris, basilique des Saints-Apôtres [later église de Sainte-Geneviève]). Gregory of Tours names (in order) Theudovald, Gunthar and Chlodovald as the sons of King Chlodomer, specifying that their paternal grandmother took them into her own household after the death of their father[109]. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records that "filios…Chlodomire orfanos Theudovaldo, Gunthario et Chlodoaldo" were brought up by "Chrodchildis regina" after their father was killed[110]. In a later passage, Gregory records that the two older sons were murdered by their uncle King Clotaire, who suspected that his mother was plotting for their succession to the throne, specifying that the older son was 10 years old[111]. MEDLANDS

b) GUNTHAR ([523]-murdered Paris 531, bur Paris, basilique des Saints-Apôtres [later église de Sainte-Geneviève]). Gregory of Tours names (in order) Theudovald, Gunthar and Chlodovald as the sons of King Chlodomer, specifying that their paternal grandmother took them into her own household after the death of their father[112]. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records that "filios…Chlodomire orfanos Theudovaldo, Gunthario et Chlodoaldo" were brought up by "Chrodchildis regina" after their father was killed[113]. In a later passage, Gregory records that the two older sons were murdered by their uncle King Clotaire, who suspected that his mother was plotting for their succession to the throne, specifying that the younger son was 7 years old[114]. MEDLANDS

c) CHLODOVALD [Cloud] ([524]-7 Sep [560], bur Monastery of Saint-Martin [later Saint-Cloud] near Paris). Gregory of Tours names (in order) Theudovald, Gunthar and Chlodovald as the sons of King Chlodomer, specifying that their paternal grandmother took them into her own household after the death of their father[115]. The Liber Historiæ Francorum records that "filios…Chlodomire orfanos Theudovaldo, Gunthario et Chlodoaldo" were brought up by "Chrodchildis regina" after their father was killed[116]. In a later passage, Gregory records that Chlodovald escaped the fate of his brothers and entered a religious life[117]. He became a monk at Nogent (now Saint-Cloud), near Paris, where he founded the monastery of Saint-Martin, renamed Saint-Cloud by the 8th century. The Vita Sancti Chlodovaldi records the death of Chlodovald on "VII Id Sep" but does not specify the year[118]. He was canonised as St Cloud, feast day 7 Sep[119]. MEDLANDS

Clodomiro (◊ c. 495 † 21 de Junho de 524). Foi o segundo dos quatro filhos de Clóvis I, rei dos francos. Quando seu pai morreu em 511, ele dividiu o reino dos francos com seus três irmãos: Teodorico I, Childeberto I e Clotário I. Embora Teodorico, o primogênito, tivesse uma excelente reivindicação, Clodomiro dividiu metade do reino com seus dois outros irmãos. Seu reino era o de Orleães, na Borgonha, tomado do antigo reino de Siágrio. O reino incluía, principalmente, os bispados de Tours, Poitiers e Orleães.

Clodomiro casou-se com Guntheuc, com quem teve três filhos: Teodebaldo, Gontário e Clodoaldo.

Em 523-524, possivelmente por instigação de sua mãe Clotilde, que ansiava por vingar seu sobrinho que havia sido assassinado por Sigismundo de Borgonha, Clodomiro se juntou a seus irmãos numa expedição contra os burgúndios. Após capturar Sigismundo, Clodomiro retornou a Orleães. No entanto, o irmão de Sigismundo, Godomar, retornou triunfalmente à Borgonha à frente das tropas enviadas por seu aliado, o rei ostrogodo Teodorico o Grande. Lá, ele massacrou a guanição militar que os francos haviam deixado.

Embora vitorioso, Clodomiro assassinou Sigismundo e seus filhos Gisaldo e Gondebaldo em 1º de maio de 524. Ele então conduziu uma segunda expedição contra os burgúndios.

Ele foi morto nesta expedição, na primavera ou verão do mesmo ano, na Batalha de Vézeronce. Seus três filhos foram confiados à sua mãe até que sua viúva se casasse com Clotário I. Clotário, no entanto, assassinou os filhos de Clodomiro, embora Clodoaldo tenha conseguido escapar. Mais conhecido como São Clodoaldo, ele depois se tornou abade de Nogent, tendo cortado seus cabelos longos, símbolo da realeza franca, abrindo mão de sua herança real.
