(also Fredegar), in historical literature, the name conventionally given to the author or authors of an anonymous Frankish chronicle compiled in the mid-seventh century. The part of the chronicle that relates events from 584 to 642 is an original work and is the only literary source covering this period in the history of such regions of the Frankish state as Burgundy and Austrasia.
