Ansbert seems to be a fanciful way to connect the Merovingians, the Arnulfings, the Pippinids, and the Carolingians. Leaving him in place in the tree as husband of Blichildis and father of Arnold is a concession to traditional genealogies, but unlikely, in the extreme, to be historical.

Wikipedia -- "Ansbertus or Ansbert, Ausbert was a Frankish Austrasian noble, as well as a Gallo-Roman Senator. He is thought to be the son of Ferreolus, Senator of Narbonne and his wife Saint Dode .... Little of his actual life is known. Published centuries later Liber Historiae Francorum states that an Ansbertus married Blithilde (also called Bilichilde), and that she was the daughter of "Lothar the father of Dagobert", and then continues the line to the Pippinids through his son Arnoald and his granddaughter Itta (wife of Pepin of Landen). ... The chronological problems with the line as presented in Chronicle of the Kings of England", William of Malmesbury, page 64, have led modern genealogists to try to re-construct the line in various ways to fix them."[1]

Metz-182 and Senator-9 appear to represent the same person because: Married to same wife, died at same time, same parents, etc.

Of Metz-43 and Metz-182 appear to represent the same person because: Same name (Ansbertus/Ausbertus of Metz), similar birth/death years. Spouse Blithilde also has a proposed merge.

Of Narbonne-14 and Ferreolus-14 appear to represent the same person because: Same name (Ferreolus), approxminately the same birth/death, children and spouses are also in the process of being merged.

No evidence of his parentage exists. Cf. his article on Wikipedia. Fanciful parentage has been unlinked, but would seek to bring his lineage back to the Roman Empire.
