It is fun to see the difference between english and french names. The pronounciation isn't even close for Theuderic --> Thierry, Odo --> Eudes, Rudolph --> Raoul...

Yikes! Now I understand why I was looking at the English names and thinking "how weird, that name (Odo, Rudolph) doesn't ring a bell at all."

Because most of the Merovingians divided their kingdoms among their sons. So there was a King I and II but they were never kings of France (perhaps of Austrasia or other territories)

Theuderic was King of Metz and Orleans, Theuderic II was King of Austrasia and Burgundy. Both ruled over subkingdoms of the Frankish kingdom.

fun fact : John II was called "The Good" and in French it makes : Jean le Bon, and a common (not funny) pun with it is Jean-Bon (jambon) which means "ham".

Now btw you know how to pronounce Jean (like "jam" in "jambon")
