About Wisigarda of the Lombards

Wisigard (ca. 510 - ca. 540) or Wisigardis was a Frankish Queen in the 6th century.

The life of Wisigard is slightly known by Gregory of Tours's Historia Francorum.[1] She was daughter of Wacho, king of the Lombards and grew up in the middle Danube region. After an abnormally long term of engagement of seven years, Wisigard married Theudebert I, Merovingian king of Austrasia. Around 531 Theuderich I, father of Theudebert I, had arranged the engagement for political reasons. But because of a liaison Theudebert had with a Roman woman named Deuteria, the union with Wisigard fell through. Anew for political reasons Theudebert abandoned Deoteria and finally married Wisigard in 537 or 538. Shortly after their wedding, she died.
