The Death of Chramm, painting by Évariste Vital Luminais, 1879. The painting depicts the execution of Chramn (aka Chramm) and his family, by his own father King Chlothar I (r. 511-561). After rebelling against his father Chramn, was sentenced to a particularly brutal death; he was tied up and locked in a poor man's hut along with his wife and daughters. Chramn was strangled to death before the hut was set on fire, leaving his wife and children to burn alive.
