      Text: King of Austrasia 575-595


      King of Burgundy 592-595


      When his father King Sigebert I of Metz was assassinated in 575, the five
      year old Childebert II succeeded as King of Austrasia. In 577, he was
      adopted by his childlessuncle King Guntram of Burgundy, and the two made
      peace. In 581, his childless uncle King Chilperic I of Soissons named
      Childebert II to be his successor,however when he died he had an infant
      son Chlotar II who inherited that throne. That year, a rivalry over
      cities belonging to Sigebert began between Guntram and Childebert, which
      was settled in Childebert's favor in 584. The nextyear, however, Guntram
      attacked and took many cities including Poitiers and Tours, but Guntram
      had to pull out for Chlotar's baptizm (didn't occur yet). Childebert then
      accepted 50,000 gold pieces from the Eastern Emperor Maurice to drive the
      Lombards out of Italy, which he did not do.


      That year also, Queen Fredegund failed to assassinated Childebert. In
      590, Childebert again invaded Italy, and made another truce with the
      Lombards. When Guntram died in 592,the Kingdom of Burgundy passed to
      him, now 22 years old.


      In 595, at the ageof 25, King Childebert II, ruler of over two thirds of
      Frankish Gaul, was poisoned by a group of Austrasian nobles, and his
      young sons Theudebert II andTheuderic II became kings of Austrasia and
      Burgundy respectively under the control of their grandmother, Queen
      Brunhild.
