In accordance with Salian tradition, the kingdom was divided between Clovis's four surviving sons: Childebert I in Paris, Chlodomer in Orléans, Clothar I in Soissons. Theuderic inherited Metz in 511 at his father's death. Early in his reign, he sent his son Theudebert to kill the Scandinavian King Chlochilaich who had invaded his realm. Theuderic got involved in the war between his brother Baderic. Theuderic was promised half of Thuringia for his help. In 531, Theuderic invaded Thuringia with the support of Clothar. Hermanfrid was killed in the invasion and his kingdom was annexed; the four sons of Clovis all fought the Burgundian kings Sigismund and Godomar. Theuderic married Sigismund's daughter Suavegotha. Godomar won back his kingdom. Chlodomer, aided by Theuderic, died in the fighting at Vézeronce. Theuderic with his brother Clotaire and his son, attacked Thuringia to revenge himself on Hermanfrid.
