(Godigisel, Godegisel). Burgundian king, son of Gundiok, lived from c. AD 474 in Geneva, always in the shadow of his older brother Gundobad (Ennod. Vita Epiphanii 174). In 500, together with the king of the Franks, Chlodovechus ( Clovis I), he defeated Gundobad at Dijon, but in 501 he was killed by the latter when Chlodovechus had to turn against the Visigoths (Greg. Tur. Franc. 2,32f; Chron. min. 2,234 Mommsen).
