About Theudebald, king of Austrasia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theudebald

Theudebald or Theodebald (in modern English, Theobald; in French, Thibaud or Théodebald; in German, Theudowald) (c. 535–555), son of Theudebert I and Deuteria, was the king of Metz, Rheims, or Austrasia—as it's variously called—from 547 or 548 to 555.

He was only thirteen years of age when he succeeded and of ill health. However, the loyalty of the nobility to his father's memory preserved the peace during his minority. He married Waldrada, daughter of the Lombard king Wacho and his stepsister (a sister of his father's second wife). This marriage fortified the alliance betweent Austrasia and Lombardy.

Nevertheless, Theudebald could not hold on to the conquests of his father in the north of Italia. The Byzantine Emperor Justinian I sent an army under the command of Narses in 552 and, like his father before him, Theudebald avoided direct confrontation with it.

After a prolonged sickness and prostration, he died in 555. His realm passed finally outside of the family of Theuderic I and was united to the kingdoms of his great-uncle Clotaire I, who would soon become king of all the Franks.

Om Theudebald, king of Austrasia (Norsk)

Teodebald I konge av Metz el. Austrasia, 547/548–555

Teodebald I (Theudoaldus) var sønn av Teodebert I og Deuteria Teodebald ble konge som barn da hans far døde og han selv barnløs i 555.

Teodebald var bare tretten eller fjorten år da han ble konge av Metz i 547 eller 548, og således fortsatt mindreårig Riket ble styrt av en guvernør mens han var mindreårig. Alamannerne, som hadde vært underlagt kongeriket Metz siden hans fars styre, forble lojale.

Han giftet seg en gang rundt 552 med Waldrada, datter til langobardenes kong Wacho og søster av dronning Wisigarde, hans fars andre hustru. Det sikret en allianse med langobardene.

Krigen i Italia Ved sankt Gallus’ død ble Teodebald (eller hans guvernør) blandet inn i etterfølgelsen ved helgens kloster. Cato, Gallus’ etterfølger gjorde personalendringer, og havnet i klammeri med presteskapet, som krevde at Teodebald måtte fjerne ham, men han nektet. Større problemer fikk han med farens besittelser i nordlige Italia. østgoterne anmodet om frankernes støtte da den bysantinske keiser Justinian I sendte en armé under Narses i 552. Som hans far før ham, unngikk Teodebald direkte konfrontasjon med Det bysantinske riket. Det ble likevel reist en frankisk hær på rundt 70 000 menn for å kjempe sammen med østgoterne, ledet av brødrene Leutaris og Buccelin, begge alamannerne. Frankerne tok Parma i besittelse, og Buccelin presset den bysantinske hæren ledet av Fulcaris.Etter at Fulcaris ble drept i 553 plyndret frankerne landet, unntatt kirkene, inntil Leutaris besluttet å dra tilbake til Frankerriket, men hans bror ble værende igjen for å slåss mot østromerne, og ble drept i kamp mot den store bysantinske generalen Narses.

Teodebald hadde fysiske skavanker og var åpenbart svakelig. Hans fysiske helse ble verre til han ble sengeliggende og til sist døde han i 555, knapt tjue år gammel. Han døde uten arvinger, og hans grandonkel Klotar I giftet seg straks med hans unge enke, og overtok hans rike. Klotar ble deretter frankernes enekonge
