Theuderic III. d. 690, father of a daughter named Bertha. In 673, the young child Theuderic III became puppet king of Neustria, and when his brothers Chlotar III and then Childeric II died in 675, he became king of all the Franks. In 687, he and the Austrasian Mayor of the Palace were defeated by Pepin II, grandson of Pepin I. He died at a young age in 691. Note: the timing of these three brother’s successions is very close after the reported death of their father, Clovis II, in 657. They must have all been about the same age; within five years or so.
