Meaning of the baby name FREDEGONDA.

  

FREDEGONDA.  Gothic Teutonic.  A Latinized form of Frank Fredegund (q.v.), a compound of frede- "peace" and -gund "war." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

... Chilperic wished also to have a wife of royal blood, and gained the hand of Gaileswintha, the sister of Brunhilda.  This passing caprice yielded soon to the influence of his beautiful and imperious mistress Fredegonda, who completely ruled the king.  One day Gaileswintha was found smothered in her bed, and Fredegonda took her place as queen (567).  Brunhilda vowed to avenge her sister, and a war broke out between Neustria and Austrasia. (A History of the Middle Ages, Duruy, 1891)
