There was more than one Merovingian King named Dagobert; their relationship was not direct descent, and they are sometimes confused.

  • Dagobert, born 580, died as an infant, 580, Soissons
  • Dagobert, born 610 Soissons, died 19 Jan 639
  • Dagobert II, born 652, died 23 Dec 679
  • Dagobert III, born 698, died 31 Dec 715

There are other DAGOBERTS (his grandchildren). There was DAGOBERT II (King of the Franks in Austrasia) but no known issue from him

Note on locations

What is the source for his birth location being Soissons?

He made his testament in Epinay-sur-Seine (know as Spinogelo, Spinogilium or Ipinacum between the VIIth and IXth centuries), and was buried at Saint-Denis, his exact place of death is not known.

Neustria and Austrasia are more period-correct than France, but the frontier between the two entities is hard to trace.


  1. Wikipedia dates his birth to c. 603[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 Gesta Dagoberti I Regis Francorum 2, MGH SS rer. Merov. II, p. 401 (Cawley, n.d.)
  3. 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.
  4. Fredegar records the marriage of King Dagobert in the eighth year of his reign to "puella nomen Ragnetrudæ" and the birth of "filium…Sigybertum" in the same year

This profile seems distinct from that of Hugobert the senechal or the bishop.
