Theodemer (Frankish king)

Theodemer (also Theudomer) was a Frankish king. He was the son of the Roman commander Richomeres and his wife Ascyla.

Not much is known of Theodemer. According to Gregory of Tours a war broke out between the Franks and the Romans some unknown time after the fall of the usurping Emperor Jovinus (411-413) who had been supported by the Franks. Around 422, a Roman army entered Gaul. King Theodemer and his mother Ascyla were executed by the sword. Theodemer's reign is supposed to be before that of king Chlodio, and the Chronicle of Fredegar makes Chlodio his son.

Theudemeres must have been a cousin of Arbogastes.
