Queen Fredegundis sent a certain cleric (clericus) to kill Queen Brunhildis. The cleric arrived at Brunhildis' court, claiming that he was a fugitive from Fredegundis. At first, he was cordially received, but then was exposed, flogged, and sent back to Fredegundis. Fredegundis had his hands and feet cut off.
