   Research Notes:

Born between 502 and 511. Gregory of Tours refers to the marriage of the (unnamed) sister of the four brothers Theoderich, Chlodomer, Childebert and Clotaire with Amalric King of the Visigoths, arranged after the death of their father, specifying that she was sent to Spain "with a great dowry of expensive jewellery". Procopius records that “rex…Visigotthorum Amalaricus” married "Regis Theodeberti sororem". Gregory names her Clotilde in a later passage in which he records that she was maltreated by her husband, and brought back to France by her brother King Childebert who attacked and defeated King Amalric, but died on the journey and was buried in Paris beside her father. 1

   Marriage Information:

Chrothieldis married Amalaric II, King of the Visigoths (511-531), son of Alaric II, Chieftan of the Visigoths (484-507) and Theodogotha DI ROMA, in 511. (Amalaric II, King of the Visigoths (511-531) was born in 502 in Ravenna and died in 531 in Barcelona, Spain.)
