Biography

"Gjúki (also Gebicca, Gifica, Gibica, Gebicar, Gibicho or Gippich) was the King of the Burgundians in the late 4th century until his death in or around 407. He was the father of Gundomar I, Giselher and Gunther."[1]


The Greenland Ballad of Atli [2]

1. "There are many who know | how of old did men
In counsel gather; | little good did they get;
In secret they plotted, | it was sore for them later,
And for Gjuki's sons, | whose trust they deceived."
47. "Then the daughter of Gjuki | two warriors smote down,
Atli's brother she slew, | and forth then they bore him;
(So fiercely she fought | that his feet she clove off;)
Another she smote | so that never he stood,
To hell did she send him,-- | her hands trembled never."
48. "Full wide was the fame | of the battle they fought,
'Twas the greatest of deeds | of the sons of Gjuki;
Men say that the Niflungs, | while themselves they were living,
With their swords fought mightily, | mail-coats they sundered,
And helms did they hew, | as their hearts were fearless."
99. "Full happy shall he be | who such offspring has,
Or children so gallant, | as Gjuki begot;
Forever shall live, | and in lands far and wide,
Their valor heroic | wherever men hear it."

Notes

While there is a historical reference, for these names...

"Gebicam, Godomarem, Gislaharium, Gundaharium, patrem quoque nostrum et patruum"

...as FMG states...

"The precise relationship with the four named individuals is unknown." [3]

This is where we run into the border between historical records and the Norse Sagas. There, in the Sagas, relationships are given for the names in question, however, how accurate they are is another question.
