Brunhilda (c. 543-613) was a princess of the Spanish Visigoths who married the Merovingian King Sigebert I of Austrasia, part of Francia. In her long and complicated career she ruled the eastern Frankish kingdoms of Austrasia and Burgundy for three periods as regent for her son, grandson and great-grandson. The period was marked by tension between the royal house and the powerful nobles vying for power.

Brunhilda was apparently an efficient ruler, but this and her forceful personality brought her into conflict with her nobles, the church, and the other Merovingians. Her bitter feud with Fredegund, who murdered Brunhilda's sister Galswintha to replace her as Queen of the Kingdom of Soissons (c. 568), lasted until Fredegund's death in 597. Fredegund had Brunhilda's husband murdered, and Brunhilda imprisoned for a period. It was continued by Fredegund's son, Clothar II, who in 613 defeated Brunhilda in battle and had her executed by being pulled apart by four horses.
