From Childebert to Dagobert the basilica had served as sepulchre for the kings and princes of the Merovingien Dynasty, all those who died in Paris or in the diocese were buried beneath the paving of the splendid monument to its founder and its patron saints.
Childebert and Clotaire were so touched, says the narrative, that they raised the siege and promised to leave the Visigoths in peace—upon two conditions: first, that Arianism be abolished in Spain; and second, that the tunic of Saint-Vincent be given them as a trophy of war.
The bones of Childebert and of Ultrogothe, his wife, in separate sarcophagi, were gathered up in the year 1656 and reinterred in the centre of the choir of the basilica, in a new tomb of marble upon whose sides the Benedictines had engraved beautiful antique inscriptions.

 Book Two Powerful king
Childebert, who was king of Paris, was angry and envious when he saw that she held them so dear, because he thought that the love and affection that his mother should have expressed towards him were instead going into her love for them.
Childebert was moved by pity, or pretended that he was, and he told his brother to calm the wrath of his heart by thinking of the bonds of kinship, letting the law of nature conquer the stirrings of wrath, and if he did this, he promised whatever reward he wished in exchange for this boon.
King Childebert, who was always thinking of evil, understood very clearly that he would not be able to defeat king Theudebert or conquer him by force; he knew very well that it would be a more profitable thing for him to make a friendly alliance, than to try something that he could not bring off.

After the death of his brother, Clodomir, in 524, he murdered his nephews and shared the kingdom of Orléans with his two remaining brothers, Childebert I and Theodoric I.

Chlotar's principal campaigns were against the Burgundians in 523 (with Childebert and Clodomir) and 532 to 534 (when he and Childebert finally imposed Frankish rule), against the Visigoths in 532 (with Theodoric) and 542 (with Childebert), and against the Thuringians in circa 531 (with Theodoric); he married the Thuringian princess, Radegunda.
Chlotar was ruthless and brutal, and the family rivalries and sometimes open hostilities in which he figured prominently were characteristic of Merovingian history; in 560 he even had his rebellious son, Chram, together with Chram's family, put to death.
