Note: King of Paris 511-558 - Son of Clovis I, King of the Franks, Childebert inherited Paris on the death of Clovis in 511. In 531, Childebert went to Spain where his sister was being mistreated by her husband, King Amalaric of the Visigoths, because of her Catholic faith. Amalaric was exiled, but Childebert's sister died that year. Upon returning to his kingdom, he made peace with his brother Theuderic I, King of Metz. He then conspired with his other living brother, Chlotar I, King of Soissons, to kill their three nephews who were being raised by their mother, Saint Clotilda. At the last minute, as Chlotar was murdering the children, Childebert backed off and one of the children was saved. When Theuderic died, Chlotar, Childebert and Theudric's son Theudebert, all fought for the kingdom. Chlotar and Childebert received very small portions, and Theudebert ascended to the throne. Theudebert and Childebert then made peace and agreed to attack their rival, Chlotar. Natural disasters prevented an attack, however, so the two kings were forced to move on to other things. Childebert decided to turn his attention to Spain, where he took much land in the Pyrenees. Childebert died in 558 and his kingdom passed to Chlotar, now King of all the Franks.
