Bertrada of Prüm
Bertrada (b. ca. 670; d. after 721), also called Berthe or Bertree, and perhaps a Merovingian princess, is known to be the mother of Caribert of Laon, with whom she is co-founder and benefactor of the Prüm Abbey. They founded the abbey in 721.
Two alternative solutions to the question of her parentage have been suggested:
- She was daughter of the seneschal and Pfalzgraf Hugobert and Irmina of Oeren.
- She was daughter of Theuderic III, king of Neustria and Austrasia, and Clotilda of Heristal.
- Maurice Chaume, "Études carolingiennes I: La famille de saint Guillaume de Gellone", in _Annales de Bourgogne_, vol. I (1929), 27-56 who presents the hypothesis that she was daughter of Theuderic (Thierry).
