Pepin II,

byname PEPIN OF HERSTAL, French PÉPIN D"HÉRISTAL (d. Dec. 16, 714, Jupille, near Liège [now in Belgium]), ruler of the Franks (687-714), the first of the great Carolingian mayors of the palace.

The son of Begga and Ansegisel, who were, respectively, the daughter of Pepin I and the son of Bishop Arnulf of Metz, Pepin established himself as mayor of the palace in Austrasia after the death of Dagobert II in 679 and defended its autonomy against Theodoric III of Neustria and Ebroïn, Theodoric"s mayor of the palace. Defeated by Ebroïn in 680 at Lucofao (near Laon), Pepin gained his revenge on the Neustrians in 687 at Tertry (near Péronne) and became sole effective ruler of the Franks. He nevertheless retained Theodoric III on the throne and after his death replaced him with three successive Merovingian kings. After several years of warfare Pepin defeated the Frisians on his northeastern border (689) and married his son Grimoald to Theodelind, daughter of the Frisian chief Radbod. He also forced the Alemanni to recognize Frankish authority again and encouraged Christian missionaries in Alemannia and Bavaria. Charles Martel was his son.

Notes

Founder of the hereditary moyoralty of the palace over all the Franks in the Arnulfing or Carolingian family. As the grandson of both Arnulf of Metz (hence "Arnufling") and Pepin I, Pepin of Heristal inherited an immense territorial fortune and by 678 was at the head of the Austrasian magnates. The death of the Mayor of the palace in Neustria in 681 led to civil war. When Pepin defeated the Neustrian army at the Battle of Terrtry in 687, he was recognized as mayor of the palace in both Autrasia and Neustria.

"The Oxford Illustrated History of Medieval Europe, Holmes, George, Oxford University Press, 1988":
The first of the great Carolingian Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia. Ruler of the Franks in 687, he managed, through the Battle of Tertry in 687, to unite Neustria and Austrasia under his own "puppet" Merovingian king. But the power struggles in northern Gaul seriously weakened the power of the merovingians and their mayors. The Aquitanians had their own Duke; the "Patricius" of Provence was for all practical purposes an independent ruler.; the aristocrats of Burgundy paid little attention to the Franks in the north.34

"Britannica On-Line":
The son of Begga and Ansegisel, who were, respectively, the daughter of Pepin I and the son of Bishop Arnulf of Metz, Pepin established himself as mayor of the palace in Austrasia after the death of Dagobert II in 679 and defended its autonomy against Theodoric III of Neustria and Ebroon, Theodoric"s mayor of the palace. Defeated by Ebroon in 680 at Lucofao (near Laon), Pepin gained his revenge on the Neustrians in 687 at Tertry (near Pironne) and became sole effective ruler of the Franks. He nevertheless retained Theodoric III on the throne and after his death replaced him with three successive Merovingian kings. After several years of warfare Pepin defeated the Frisians on his northeastern border (689) and married his son Grimoald to Theodelind, daughter of the Frisian chief Radbod. He also forced the Alemanni to recognize Frankish authority again and encouraged Christian missionaries in Alemannia and Bavaria. Charles Martel was his son.
