Clotilde (or Chrodechildis) ( 500–531) was the daughter of King Clovis I of the Franks and Queen Clotilde and the queen of the Visigothic King Amalaric. She was born circa 500.

Clotilde married Amalric in 511,[1] and ties between both families were initially positive. Clotilde was a Catholic, while Amalaric and his fellow-Visigoths were Arians. Clotilde refused to adopt her husband's religious practices and complained to her kin that she was persecuted for her faith. Amalaric was subsequently kicked out from Narbonne.[2] War ensued in 531 between her brother, King Childebert I, and her husband,[1] at Barcelona, Spain.[2] Amalaric was eventually defeated and killed and Clotilde returned to Francia with the Frankish army,[1] but died on the journey and was buried at Paris.
