  1. Many internet resources list him as the son of Ingund Thuringen, but Gregory of Tours gives his mother as Ingund's sister Arnegundis/Aregonde.
  2. Notice of resolution of ambiguous parentage
    This profile has been edited with regard to parents in accordance with principles established by the European Aristocracy user-group. Medieval genealogy is not an exact science, and digital collaborative genealogy must therefore occasionally make choices where old-fashioned print-scholarship did not have to. The parents (or lack of parents) of the person described in this profile were decided upon in consultation with primary sources especially as collected in the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy’s Medieval Lands project.

I show his mom as Arégonde des Francs, Queen (c.504 - 587), daughter of Chlodomir of the Franks, II (c.490 - 532) and Arnegunde of the Saxons (c.490 - d.), but I can't seem to map her to any of the 6 Aregund's listed. Anyone?
