  • Note: Clothilde (Clotilda) of Burgundy (afterwards Saint Clothilde), born 475, died at Tours in 545, "the girl of the French Vineyards". She was the daughter of Gondebaud (Chilperic II.?), King of Burgundy. She was Arian by religion, but with strong Roman Catholic tendencies. This marriage was of primary importance, as the real shape of France dated from it. It was she who led her husband to abandon his old beliefs and embrace Christianity. He was baptized in the 15th year of his reign at Rheims on Christmas Day in 496, with 3, 000 of his followers. When Clovis first heard the story of Christ's crucifixion, he was so moved that he cried, "If I had been there with my valiant Franks, I would have avenged Him." Henceforth the Church played a decisive role in the history of the kings of France.
