  • Notes 
    • Roi d' Austrasie 623-18/10/629, puis roi des Francs 18/10/629-16/01/639

      King of Austrasia 623- 639
      King of Neustria and Bourgogne 629 - 639
      King of the Franks 632-639;
      Dagobert, the eldest son of Chlotar II and Bertrude, received the kingdom of Austrasia from his father in 623 A.D, under the control of Bishop Arnoul of Metz. When Chlotar II died in 629 A.D, Dagobert I received Neustria and Burgundy, leaving Aquitaine for his brother, Caribert II. When Caribert died in 632 AD, Dagobert reunited the Frankish kingdom and took Paris as its capital. He was the last great Merovingian king, imposing his authority on the aristocracy and attracting talented counsellors such as Ely or Didier. He defeated the Basques, Bretons, Visigoths and Lombards but failed to quell the Slavs and he signed a peace treaty with the Byzantine Emperor, Heraklius, in 631 AD. He received the full backing of the Catholic Church for he continued to convert pagans and create or extend numerous monasteries (e.g. Saint-Denis). In 634 AD, he appointed his son, Sigebert III, King of Austrasia; this shows a certain push for independence on the part of the Austrasian people. Then, before his death, he took steps to organise his succession by giving Neustria and Burgundy to his other son, Clovis II. It was during his reign that two families were united - the family of Pepin, Mayor of the Palace in Austrasia, and the family of Bishop Arnoul of Metz who founded the Carolingian dynasty.
