Merovech II - King of Salic Franks(448-458)


MEROVECH
also spelled MEROVICH, MEROVEUS, MERWICH, or MEROWIG, French MÉROVÉE, German MEROWECH (fl. c. AD 450), king of the Salian Franks, from whom Frankish tradition held the Merovingian dynasty to have taken its name. He was the father of Childeric I (d. 481/482) and grandfather of Clovis I (c. 466-511).

Nothing definite is known of Merovech"s life. He is mentioned in Gregory of Tours"s History of the Franks and, according to later sources, fought against Attila the Hun at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains (451).

Merovaeus, founder of the Merovingian House of Frankish Kings, was possibly
the son-in-law rather than son of Clodion. Merovaeus defeated Atilla with the aid of Aetius in 451 and reigned as King, 448-458. Also known as Merowig, he was a Flandrian or Tournai Frank.{See Encyclopaedia Brit., 1959, 5:467-8, 9:698}

as part of research looking into the merovingian dynasty, i haven"t been able to locate any information that would point to the parents and other descendents of Merovech, King of the Franks from c.e. 447-458. he is also often called Merovee. i know the rumours that he was descended from the tribe of Benjamin when they became the Sicambrian Franks, but I can"t find anything to substantiate this. Any help would be appreciated.
