  • ID: I5166
  • Name: Brunechild (Brunnhilde) _____
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 550 1
  • Death: ABT 613 1
  • Occupation: Queen of Burgundy
  • Note:
    After Fredegunde killed her sister Galswintha (who had married her husband's
    brother Chilperic), she feuded with her for decades.

    Christopher Cope, "The Lost Kingdom of Burgundy":

    ". . . her own end was brutally
    dramatic. In 613, when she was about sixty-three, she was overwhelmed
    and captured by the Franks in a battle on the shores of Lake Neuchatel in
    north-west Switzerland. She was tortured for three days and set on a
    camel as a mark of derision; there cannot have been many in Christian
    Europe in those days. Then she was tied by her flowing white hair by an
    arm and a foot to the tail of a vicious stallion which her captors lashed
    to fury until her limbs were torn from her body. With the passing of this
    queen of Burgundy, heroic, legendary and larger-than-life, we take one
    more step into the gloom that accompanied the disintegration of the
    classical world."
