ca. 629

Decree issued by King Dagobert [Present-day France] [Unconfirmed]

Commentary from other sources:
1) “In 629 Dagobert issued an edict commanding the wholesale baptism of all unbelievers in his domains, under threat of instant banishment. A great number of Jews thereupon sold their effects and left the kingdom; but heretic-hunting had not made sufficient progress in public esteem at that early date, therefore many of them were but slightly affected.”
