Martin of Laon

Martin (647-680) was the count of Laon in the late 7th century.

After the assassination of King Dagobert II of Austrasia in 679, Martin and Pepin of Herstal were the leading noblemen of Austrasia and led the resistance against Neustrian mayor Ebroin, who had designs on all Francia. Ebroin defeated the Austrasians in the Battle of Lucofao (679/80). Pepin escaped to Cologne; Martin made it back to Laon, where he was assassinated on Ebroin's orders. Martin's date of death is unknown he is buried Saint Denis Basilique.

Martin possibly was the husband of Bertrada of Prüm and thus father of Charibert of Laon, a grandfather of Charlemagne.
