Chrodebert I (Chrotbert, Radobertus, Robert I) (died 695), Merovingian refendary and Bishop of Tours (as Chrotbert, 660-695), son of Charibert de Haspengau and his wife Wulfgurd. Robert and his brothers Erlebert and Aldebert were the ancestors of the Robertians.
Robert began his career as referendary to Dagobert I, the last king of the Merovingian dynasty to actually wield power, and his son Clovis II. He was the Mayor of the Palace of Burgundy (as Radobertus) from 642-662) and possibly that of Neustria during the interregnum of Ebroin. He may have been Bishop of Paris, but there is little evidence to support this.
Robert was married to Glismoda of Bavaria, parentage unknown. They had two children:
Lambert was the father of count palatine Chrodbert.
