CHILDEBERT II
(b. 570--d. December 595), Merovingian king of the eastern Frankish kingdom of Austrasia and later also king of Burgundy.

Still very young on the death of his father, Sigebert I, in 575, Childebert was dominated at times by his mother, Brunhild, who was hostile to his uncle, King Chilperic of Soissons. The intervention in 575 of a second uncle, Guntram of Burgundy, to protect Childebert"s southern lands against Chilperic was followed two years later by Guntram"s adoption of his young nephew as his heir. The Austrasian-Burgundian alliance was briefly broken in 581, when Chilperic too adopted Childebert, but Guntram bought off Childebert by the cession of territory.

After Chilperic"s death in 584, Childebert, now of age, purged the Austrasian nobility and, in ostensible alliance with the Byzantine emperor, embarked on a series of unsuccessful campaigns against the Lombards of Italy. Settling his differences with Guntram, who again recognized him as heir, he duly took over Burgundy on his uncle"s death in 592. Free of Guntram"s restraining hand, he immediately attacked Chilperic"s young son and successor, Chlotar II, but was defeated. He was succeeded by his two young sons, Theodebert II and Theodoric II.
