Another very quick note. In Thorpe's readable and I think generally very good translation of Gregory, he says that Clovis said "chloderic, the son of your king, my brother". The LAtin from "The Latin Library" goes "chlodericus, filius parentis mei" which literally means "Chloderic, son of my relative (kinsman)" The words "regis vestri" and "fratri (mei)" are absent. There are probably more than one manuscript in existence so it may be that Thorpe translated from a different manuscript but I tend to doubt it. I would have to see it certainly. He is calling Sigibert the lame his relative (though I would assert this includes kinship by marriage) not his "brother" (colleague) in kinship
