A Frankish noble, Arnulf gave distinguished service at the Austrasian court
under Theudebert II (595-612) but in 613 with Pepin, led the aristocratic
opposition to Brunhild that led to her downfall and to the reunification of
Frankish lands under Chlotar II. About the same year he became Bishop.
From 623, again with Pepin, now mayor of the Austrasian palace, Arnulf was
advisor to Dagobert I, before retiring (629?) to become a hermit. Arnulf's
son Ansegisel married Pepin's daughter Begga; the son of this marriage,
Pepin II, was Charlemagne's great-grandfather."
