  • Marriage (1): Arnold of Metz


Doda married Arnold of Metz. (Arnold of Metz was born in 582 and died on 16 Aug 641.)

  Marriage Notes:

Some sources identify Arnulf's wife as Doda, or Oda (of Heristal).

"Arnulf married Doda, and their son was Ansegisel. Ansegisel married Beggia, the daughter of Pepin of Landen, starting the Carolingian dynasty of France. Doda became a nun, and Arnulf made plans to enter a monastery but was named the bishop of Metz around 616. He continued his court services, making Clotaire of Neustria the king of Austrasia. He also served as counselor to Dagobert, King Clotaire's son. In 626, Arnulf retired to a hermitage at Remiremont, France." 2502
