  Research Notes:

From Wikipedia - Waldrada :

Waldrada, widow (firstly) of Theudebald , King of Austrasia (ruled 548-555), repudiated wife (secondly) of Chlothar I , King of the Franks (ruled c.558-561), was the daughter of Wacho , King of the Lombards (ruled c.510-539) and his second wife Ostrogotha, a Gepid . The Origo Gentis Langobardorum names "Wisigarda …secundæ Walderada" as the two daughters of Wacho and his second wife, specifying that Waldrada married "Scusuald regis Francorum" and later "Garipald ".[1] The Historia Langobardorum names "Waldrada" as Wacho's second daughter by his second wife, specifying that she married "Chusubald rex Francorum".[2] Paulus Diaconus names "Wisigarda…[et] secunda Walderada" as the two daughters of King Wacho & his second wife, specifying that Walderada married "Cusupald alio regi Francorum" and later "Garipald".[3] Gregory of Tours names Vuldetrada as the wife of King Theodebald.[4] Herimannus names "Wanderadam" wife of "Theodpaldus rex Francorum" when recording her second marriage to "Lotharius rex patris eius Theodeberti patruus".[5] According to Gregory of Tours, King Clotaire "began to have intercourse" with the widow of King Theodebald, before "the bishops complained and he handed her over to Garivald Duke of Bavaria",[6] which does not imply that King Clotaire married Waldrada.

Waldrada married Theudebald King of Austrasia, son of Theudebert I King of Austrasia and Deuteria. (Theudebald King of Austrasia was born about 535 and died in 555 in Austrasia, Frankish Empire, (France or Germany).)

Waldrada next married Garibald I Duke of Bavaria, son of Fara Prince of Heruli and Unknown, in 556. (Garibald I Duke of Bavaria was born about 540 and died about 591.)
