Antonio, Texas: The Naylor Company, 1952), at pp.1&2.

Apparently the original sources of this list were "Mostly from charts
compiled by J. H. Tyrrell of London"
Alt Name: Pharamond First King Of All France

Faramund is not mentioned by Roman historians of the 4-5th centuries
or Gregory of Tours (c.570/90), hence most modern historians omit
any reference to him as a historical person. The reason why he turns
up in so many genealogies etc, is that the 8th century _Liber
Historiae Francorum_ (ch.5) says that Faramund was the son of
Sunno and father of Chlodio.

Now Sunno is known from the earlier sources: GT II, 9 quotes (?) a
Roman source which says he was one of the chieftains who invaded
Gaul and were defeated by the Romans (c.389 AD), and elsewhere, GT
reports the tradition that Meroveus was the son of Chlodio.

Historians have tended to regard Faramund as an invention to bridge
the gap between Sunno and Clodio, and so establish a dubious
dynastic continuity.
