Notes
a. Note:   In 580 there was a major dysentery epidemic in all of Gaul in which King Chilperic I of Soissons and his queen Fredegund lost all of their children except Clovis. They then ordered Clovis to go to Berny, where the epidemic was still active, with hopes of killing him as well. He didn't catch the disease, so Fredegund had Clovis and his mother Audovera killed, and his sister Basina put into a nunnery at Poitiers. In Poitiers, from 589 to 590, Basina and her cousin Clotild led a revolt against the Abbess Leubovera. The revolt grew so large that the King Guntram of Burgundy and King Childebert II of Austrasia asked bishops from their kingdoms to handle it, since Count Macco of Poiters could not. And so, Ebregisel, Bishop of Cologne, Maroveus, Bishop of Poitiers, Saint Gregory, Bishop of Tours, and Gundegisel, Bishop of Bordeaux passed judgement to restore the Abbess to her position and to excommunicate both Basina and Clotild. In 590, they were both pardoned by the king and recommunicated by the bishops, and Basina returned to the nunnery where she spent the rest of her life in obedience to her Abbess.
