Gundioc (d. 473), King of the Burgundians 
According to Cawley (2006), Gundioc is related to, "the family of King Athanaric," (d. 381).
Father: Gundahar (d. after 436)
Gundiac, had four (4) sons by unknown mother(s):
"Bourgogne (French), Burgund (German), Burgundy (English) is an area historically part of modern France and Switzerland. It was inhabited by Celts, Romans (Gallo-Romans), Burgundians (a Germanic tribe) and by the Franks.
For a brief historical time this area was controlled by the Burgundians, filling the void left by the collapse of the western half of the Roman Empire. "In A.D. 411, they crossed the Rhine and established a kingdom at Worms. Amidst repeated clashes between the Romans and Huns, the Burgundian kingdom eventually occupied what is today the borderlands between Switzerland, France, and Italy. In 534, the Franks defeated Godomar, the last Burgundian king, and absorbed the territory into their growing empire."
In 411 AD, Gundahar/Gundicar, King of Burgundy, and Goar, King of the Alans, placed a puppet emperor, Jovinus, on the throne of Gaul. The Alans and others had previously crossed the Rhine and invaded Gaul. With the authority of this puppet, Jovinus, Gundahar settled the west bank of the Rhine, and seized Worms, Speyer, and Strasbourg. The Emperor Honorius later granted the land to Gundahar, refered to as "commander of the Burgundians"
As frequently happens, the Burgundians, not content with what they had on the Rhine, continued raids into Roman upper Gallia Belgica. In 436, these raids were brought to an end. The Roman general, Flavius Aetius, recruited Hun mercenaries. They fought and overwhelmed the Rhineland kingdom kiling Gundahar and a majority of the Burgundian tribe.

Gundobad, the son of Gondioc, succeeded Ricimer in 472, but abdicated after the death of his father in the following year as Gondioc was succeeded by his brother Chilperic I. After the death of Chilperic, Burgundy was divided among the sons of Gondioc, Gundobad, Chilperic II of Burgundy, Godomar and Godegisel.
