(b. 630/631--d. Feb. 1, 656, Metz, Fr.), one of the first so-called rois faineants ("sluggard kings") of the Merovingian dynasty, who held no real power of his own but was ruled by whoever was his mayor of the palace.

Made king of Austrasia by his father, Dagobert I, in 634, Sigebert was governed first by Bishop Chunibert of Cologne and Duke Adalgisile; then, on Dagobert"s death, by Chunibert and Pepin I, the mayor of the palace (d. 640); and finally by Pepin"s son, Grimoald, mayor of the palace from 642 or 643 until the king"s death.

In the early 640s, when a certain Otto was mayor of the palace, Thuringia succeeded in gaining effective autonomy at Austrasian expense. After Sigebert"s death, his young son, Dagobert II, was sent off to an Irish monastery by Grimoald, who briefly established his own son, Childebert (adopted by Sigebert when the king was still childless) on the throne.

King od Austrasia 632-656; m. Immachilde.

Sigebert III of Austrasia, King (AC)
Born in 631; died 656. Saint Sigebert, son of Dagobert I and baptized by Saint Amand at Orleans, became king of Austrasia (eastern France) at the age of seven, while his brother Clovis II ruled the western portion of his father"s domain. Under the influence of Blessed Pepin of Landen, Saint Cunibert of Cologne, and other saintly souls, the young king grew into pious adulthood. He died at the age of 25. Though not a secular success as a ruler, he was revered as the founder of numerous monasteries (including Stavelot and Malmedy), hospitals, and churches. He is the patron saint of Nancy (Benedictines, Farmer).

Sigebert III,King of Austrasia(631-656)

Sigebert III reigned in Austrasia with Pepin of Landen, who had returned and was installed as mayor of the palace after the death of Dagobert. The history of Austrasia is better known to us as far as 657 because, at that time, it had a chronicler.
