Rado (mayor of the palace)

Rado (mayor of the palace)

Rado or Radon was the mayor of the palace of Burgundy from 613 to 617.

He, along with Warnachar, Pepin of Landen, and Saint Arnulf, abandoned the cause of the queen Brunhilda and the young king Sigebert II and joined with Clotaire II, promising not to rise in defence of the queen-regent and recognising Clotaire as rightful regent and guardian of Sigebert. He was confirmed in his mayoralty by Clotaire, who also confirmed Warnachar as mayor of Austrasia. On Rado's death, Warnachar was confirmed in Burgundy and Austrasia was given to another.
