Garibald's parents are unknown. Garibald was previously linked to Theodebald as his father, and that connection has been broken.Day-1904 19:32, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

The chronology and parentage of the early Dukes of Bavaria is impossible now to discern; to link them in WikiTree would in my (Roger Travis) opinion be irresponsible. See the family-name Bayern and the category for a list of them.[2]


Garibald, Duke of Bavaria, died in 591. [1]


Garibald was Duke of Bavaria in 598. The Salzburg Annals record that "Gerbaldus Bawariæ regnum accepit" in 598, although this is inconsistent with the dates attributed in other sources to Duke Tassilo I [1]

The references in primary sources to his wife imply that Garibald was already duke of Bavaria at the time of his marriage. [1]

Marriage to Waldrada

After 555 he married Waldrada as her third husband. Waldrada was widow first of Theodebald, King of the Franks and secondly of Clotaire I, King of the Franks. [1]

She was the daughter of Waccho, King of the Lombards and his second wife Ostrogotha of the Gepides. [1]

The Origo Gentis Langobardorum names "Wisigarda…secundæ Walderada" as the two daughters of Wacho & his second wife, specifying that Waldrada married "Scusuald regis Francorum" and later "Garipald". The Historia Langobardorum names "Waldrada" as Wacho's second daughter by his second wife, specifying that she married "Chusubald rex Francorum". Paulus Diaconus names "Wisigarda…[et] secunda Walderada" as the two daughters of King Wacho & his second wife, specifying that Walderada married "Cusupald alio regi Francorum" and later "Garipald". Gregory of Tours names Vuldetrada as the wife of King Theodebald. Herimannus names "Wanderadam" wife of "Theodpaldus rex Francorum" when recording her second marriage to "Lotharius rex patris eius Theodeberti patruus". [1]

According to Gregory of Tours, King Clotaire "began to have intercourse" with the widow of King Theodebald, before "the bishops complained and he handed her over to Garivald Duke of Bavaria", which does not imply that King Clotaire married Waldrada. [1]


Duke Garibald & his wife had three children: [1]

Garivald had three (3) children with his wife, Waldrada of the Lombardian Lething clan.

Recommended TO DO:
  • Detach Garibald from alleged father Theodald, due to lack of proof (see Cawley, 2006).[1]
