Who fathered Merovech (Meroveus)? Some have him as the putative son of King Chlodio (or Chlogio)? Legend has it that Meroveus is the result of his mother, the Queen, meeting a sea monster. Gregory, Bishop of Tours in his History of France wrote "Some say the Merovech decended from Chlodio." However, I've even read that he was Chlodio's cousin. Why is so little known about a guy that named a dynasty?
