CAUTION: there's, "no Merovingian evidence to support the notion that Arnulf had a son Ansegisel who married Begga, and therefore there is no compelling evidence to prove the Pippinids were related to the bishop of Metz," (Chrysos & Wood, 1999).[7]

He served King Sigbert III of Austrasia (634-656) as a duke (Latin dux, a military leader) and domesticus. He was killed sometime before 679, slain in a feud by his enemy Gundewin.
