    Childéric, named the son of Mérovée by Gregory of Tours (1), was the chief of the Salian Franks, who settled in Belgica Secunda, between the Meuse and Somme rivers. He was exiled to Thuringia for eight years by his own subjects, irritated by his violence, and replaced with the Roman military commander Ægidius. On his return, Childéric played an important role as an ally of the Romans. He helped the Romans to repel the Visigoths near Orléans, then took Angers (c. 463 or c. 469) and allied with Odoacer against the Aleman invasion (476/480).
