Waldrada, was officially married to Theobald I, King of the Franks (d.555), who was paralyzed below the waist in 554. According to Gregory of Tours, Waldrada had an affair with Clotaire, the year her husband died. Clotaire, then passed her to Garivald (d. 591) ... who may or may not have been Duke of Bavaria, when he married Waldrada, some time after 555.
Herimannus, however, calls Waldrada, Clotaire's wife ... despite Gregory's accusation that Clotaire was trying to hide their intimate relations from the church. Gregory, explains that Clotaire, did this by pawning her off on Garivald, who got rid of her, after producing three children.
Cawley (2006), notates these incidents by labeling Waldrada, the "repudiated wife" of each, but acknowledges that documentation from Gregory of Tours, "does not imply ... Clotaire married Waldrada."
