Hugobert D' AUSTRASIE Seneschal of the Franks
Another name for Hugobert was Chugoberctus or Hociobercthus.
a seneschal and a count of the palace at the Merovingian court during the reigns of Theuderic III and Childebert III. He was a grandson of the dux Theotar, and it is assumed, but not proven, that his father was a certain Chugus, who in 617 became mayor of the palace of Austrasia. The juxtaposition of names in the Vita Landiberto episcopi Traiectensis may imply a relationship between him and the family of Lambert.
It has been disproven that he is one and the same with bishop Hugobert of Liège, because his wife appears in the records of Echternach in the year 698 as a widow. It is certain that Hugobert, through his daughter Bertrada of Prüm, is one of the ancestors Charlemagne. He was married to Irmina of Oeren, whom shortly after his death, made possible the founding of the Abbey of Echternach. He last appears in a royal charter dated 14 March 697.
Hugobert married Irmina D' OEREN.
