<I001855> Father: Clovis I ("The Great"), King of FRANKS
DEATH: 534


Thierry I reigned 511-534. He was succeeded by his son, Theodobert I (d.548 - succeeded by his son Theodobald, d. 555). Thierry"s mother is a mistress of Clovis before his marriage to Clothilda. Thierry as eldest son received the eastern portion of his father"s domains, with Rheims as capital (including Cologne, Treves, Strasburg, Metz, Toul and Verdun, and part of Aquitaine). He was 25 at its father"s death and proved to be a rough and energetic fighter.

(d. 533 or 534), Merovingian king of Reims from 511. Theodoric was the eldest son of Clovis I, but born of an unknown woman, unlike the other sons, whose mother was Clotilda. An able soldier, he played an important part in his father"s campaigns against the Visigoths. On Clovis" death in 511 a fourfold division of his kingdom took place, each of his sons receiving some territories north of the Loire River and some to its south. No doubt as the most experienced of the four, Theodoric received those northern lands (the future Austrasia) most exposed to attack; their axis was the Rhine. In the 520s Theodoric gained a share of his brother Clodomir"s kingdom when the dead king"s sons were murdered by Theodoric"s two other half-brothers, Childebert and Chlotar. Theodoric campaigned with Clodomir against the Burgundians in 524 and with Chlotar against the Visigoths in 532. His greatest success lay in the subjection of the Thuringians, achieved with the help of Chlotar c. 531. It was perhaps now that the Saxons were temporarily also reduced to dependence. As violent and unscrupulous as most of the other Merovingian rulers, Theodoric was arguably the most vigorous and effective of Clovis" sons. He was succeeded by his son, Theodebert I.
