Byname Pepin of Landen, or Pepin the Elder, councillor of the Merovingian king
Chlotar II and mayor of the palace in Austrasia. Through the marriage of his
daughter Begga with Ansegisel, Son of Arnulf of Metz, Pepin was the founder of
the Carolingian dynasty. Deprived of his mayoralty at the accesion (629) of
Dagobert I, he regained power in Austrasia after that king's death (January
639) but did not long survive to enjoy it.
