According to a secondary source, Chrodobertus (or Chrodbert or Robert) was the son of Charibert, nobilis in Neustria, but there seems to be no primary sources that confirm this.
He was probably the eldest of three brothers, and perhaps born about 600. Haltbert, and Erlebert were his brothers, and Lambert (or Lambertus or Lantbert), who entered the church, becoming Abbot of Fontanelle, and Bishop of Lyon, his nephew (son of Erlebert).
Chrodobertus served in the Neustrian court, being appointed referendarius to Dagobert I on 8 April 630. He was summus palatii referendarius, (Grand Chancellor?) perhaps under
Clothaire III, and was also anulus (bearer of the seal?) to the same king.
The wife of Chrodobertus is unknown, but he definitely had one child;
1. Angadrisma, who became a nun
According to the same secondary source he was also the father of:
2. Lambert I also nobilis in Neustria.
As Clothaire III reigned from 657,Chrodobertus must have died after that date.
