Personal Information    |    PDF

  • Name St. Arnolph de Metz 
    Gender Male 
    Died Yes, date unknown 
    • He was also known as Saint Arnoul de Metz. He was mayor of the Palace and the tutor of Dagobert, Bishop of Metz. (C-1346, 1440)
      As to his ancestry, current thought is similar to Weis's "Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists". It gives it as follows: His father was Bodegeisel II who married Oda , a Suevian. Bodegeisel II was the son of St. Gondolfus and nephew of Bodegeisel II. St. Gondolfus was the son of Munderic (who was young in 509), Munderic was the son of Cleric, King of Cologne, murdered in 509 by agents of Clovis I. Childeric was the son of Sigebert the Lame, King of Cologne, murdered in 509 by his son at the order of Clovis I, King of the Salic Franks. Sigebert was the son of Childebert, King of Cologne who was the son of Clovis the Riparian, Frankish King of Cologne and was living in 420. Clovis, the Pirarian was related to Clovis I. (C-1440)
      Older sources give his parentage as Arnoul /Bishop of Metz/ and Oda. This is currently not in favor as his lineage because it disagrees with primary sources at the time that state he was of Frankish descent as well as other discrepancies. The original source for his father being Bishop Arnoul is suspected to have been created by interests of Charlemagne's time trying to tie his ancestry into a Merovingian/Roman combination.
