Chilperic I (ca. 539 – September 584) was the king of Neustria (or Soissons) from 561 to his death. He was one of the sons of the Frankish king Clotaire I and Queen Aregund. Immediately after the death of his father in 561, he endeavoured to take possession of the whole kingdom, seized the treasure amassed in the royal town of Berny and entered Paris.
The Story: Maeve, the Queen of Connacht and her husband Ailill were having an argument over which one was wealthier. When Maeve discovered that Ailill had a magnificent white bull, superior to any in her herd, she decided to search the country for a better one. Such a creature was found in Ulster, on the Cooley peninsula, owned by a farmer called Dáire. Maeve sent a messenger to Cooley to see if Dáire would give her a loan of the bull for a year. When he refused she decided to take it by force.
