BAD GEDCOM: Theodelinde, Queen of Bourgogne. Birth: 470, 480 Marne Bourgogne. Death: 557 Somme, Picardie. She is reported to have married both Godogesil of Burgundy and Siegbert of Austrasia, having children by both (but probably not Cloderic, who is listed as her stepson). Various claims have been made as to her paternity, including the entry for Gunther of Burgundy. Some list her mother as another Theodelind (with either a or e at the end).


a.) Godogesil of Burgundy... no known wife or children. Sigibert of Austrasia married Brunhilda. The father of Cholderic is Sigibert (Sigobert) "the lame," King of Franks on the Rhine (Cologne and Zulpich)... not the same people. ... Gunthar is semi-legendary.[1] There's a mashup of characters causing a trainwreck.
b.) Confusion may also stem from Authari's broken engagement to Choldesindis "Clodesinde" (575/6 - after 594)... daughter of Sigibert I, and Brunhilda of the Visigoths. "Chlodosind is named as daughter of Queen Brunhilde, and sister of King Childebert, in the Treaty of Andelot dated 28 Nov 587." ... Authari ended up being the first husband of Theolinda, Queen of the Lombards -- daughter of Garivald I, Duke of Bavaria and Waldrada.[2] After he died, she married: Agilolf "Ago" (d. 615), King of the Lombards (p. UNKNOWN)
