Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia 640-656
Grimoald succeeded his father Pepin I as Mayor of the Palace, and he allowed the boy king Sigebert III to rule on his own. In 640, this proved to be a bad idea when Sigebert failed to stop a Thuringian revolt. In 656, when Sigebert died, Dagobert II his son became king, although Grimoald had him sent off to be a monk in Ireland and installed his own son Childebert, who conviently had a Merovingian name. The installation was not at all accepted, and that year Grimoald and his son were executed on the order of the Neustrian/Burgundian King Clovis II.
