Childeric II was the king of Austrasia from 662 and of Neustria and Burgundy from 673 until his death, making him sole King of the Franks for the final two years of his life. Childeric was the second eldest son of King Clovis II and grandson of King Dagobert I and Queen Nanthild, his mother was Saint Balthild and his elder brother was Chlothar III, sole king from 661, but gave Austrasia to Childeric the next year. He was still a mere child when he was raised on the shields of his warriors and proclaimed king in Austrasia. After the death of Chlothar in 673, Theuderic III, his youngest brother, inherited his kingdoms, but a faction of prominent Burgundian nobles led by Saint Leodegar and Adalrich invited Childeric to become king in Neustria and Burgundy, he soon displaced him, becoming sole king. He made his Austrasian Mayor of the Palace, mayor in Neustria and Burgundy, displacing Ebroin of Neustria and upsetting his supporters in Burgundy who did not wish to see functionaries active in a kingdom other than their native one.
In March 675, Childeric had granted honores in Alsace to Adalrich with the title of dux. This grant was most the result of Adalrich's continued support for Childeric in Burgundy, which had disputed possession of Alsace with Austrasia; the final straw for the magnates of Neustria, was Childeric's illegal corporal punishment of the nobleman named Bodilo. Bodilo and his friends Amalbert and Ingobert conspired to assassinate the king, killed, along with his wife and his five-year-old son, while hunting in the forest of Livry, he was buried in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, near Paris, where the tombs of him and his young son Dagobert were discovered in 1645. Childeric married his cousin Bilichild. Besides the aforementioned Dagobert, she bore him the future king Chilperic II; this article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Chisholm, Hugh, ed.. "Childeric".

Berlin 07 is an album by German experimental music group Cluster. It was recorded in 2007 at a Cluster concert in Berlin, their first there since 1969. Cluster were formed in 1969, breaking up in 1981. A reunion followed in 1990 only for the band to break up again in 1997, they reformed again in 2007 with a concert in the Kosmische Club, Camden, UK. Following this, sister band Harmonia reformed. Dieter Moebius and Michael Rother toured extensively to allow Roedelius to get on with his solo work; the reunited Harmonia played in Berlin in November, followed by a Cluster concert. This is that concert, presented by Important Records, the home label of Cluster collaborator Conrad Schnitzler. Berlin 07 is recorded much in the style of the duo's previous two albums, both of which drew from Roedelius' Sinfonia Contempora sound, that he developed on his two solo albums Sinfonia Contempora No. 1: Von Zeit zu Zeit and Sinfonia Contempora No. 2: La Nordica. The album's style differs from the Sinfonia Contempora albums as it quite contains elements of Moebius' style as well.
It mixes avant-techno with mocking synth growls. The album was released as a limited edition, which sold out quickly. Following this there came the unlimited edition, it is bereft of an interior booklet or any information bar a promotional sticker on the wrapping, which reads as follows: CLUSTER Berlin 07. Berlin 07 is a monumental performance for Cluster as it marked the first time they had performed live in Berlin since their twelve hour concert in Gallerie Hammer in the Europacentre 1969; the performance was a massive success as a sold out crowd cheered loudly for Cluster's return to the stage. The concert was preserved for posterity and is now proudly presented to you by Important Records. Part 1 - 29:47 Part 2 - 36:45
