Theodebald I (534 - 555), King of the Franks, was paralyzed from the waist down in 554. He died the next year.[1]


Cawley (2006), states that he married Waldrada, during the same year of his paralysis, and does not name any known children. [1]


There is no evidence of his having children; fanciful connection to a fanciful Grimoald of Aquitaine has been removed.

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.
