Note 164
From Chapter 38 of the Decline & Fall

In the copious history of Gregory of Tours we cannot find any traces of hostile or friendly intercourse between France and England, except in the marriage of the daughter of Caribert, king of Paris,

quam in Cantia regis cujusdam filius matrimonio copulavit (1. ix. c. 26, in tom. ii. p. 348).

The bishop of Tours ended his history and his life almost immediately before the conversion of Kent.
