Chrotrudis DE TRÈVES Duchess of Austrasia
- Born: Abt 690, Moselle, Austrasia, France
- Married: 706
- Died: 725
The Annales Laureshamenses record the death in 724 of "Hortrudis". The Annales Mosellani record the death in 725 of "Chrothrud". Settipani quotes a name list in the Liber confraternitatum augiensis which reads in part "Karolus maior domus, Pippin rex…Karolus imperator…Ruadtrud, Ruadheid, Svanahild regina, Bertha regina, Hiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina…". He makes the obvious links between "Karolus maior domus…Svanahild regina", "Pippin rex…Bertha regina" and "Karolus imperator…Hiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina", deducing that "Ruadtrud, Ruadheid" must also be linked logically to "Karolus maior domus" because of the order in which the names are listed. The Annales Petaviani record the death in 725 of "Chrotrudis" but do not specify that she was Charles’s wife.
A number of secondary sources show Chrotrude's father as Liutwin, Count of Treves.
Chrotrudis married Charles "Martel" NIBELUNG, son of Pépin II "le Gros" NIBELUNG Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia and Alpais (Chalpaida), in 706. (Charles "Martel" NIBELUNG was born about 688 in Heristal, , Neustria, died on 16 Oct 741 in Quierzy-Sur-Oise, Aisne, France and was buried in église de l'abbaye royale de Saint Denis.)
