Chilperic I


Chilperic I (r. 561-584) was a king of the Merovingian Dynasty, who ruled over the Frankish kingdom of Neustria. During his reign, Chilperic was often occupied with civil wars against his brothers and intrigues by his own sons, conflicts that were fueled by the rivalry between Chilperic's wife, Queen Fredegund, and her opposite number Brunhilda of Austrasia.
