About Gundomar II, roi des Burgondes

Extracted from Wikipedia

Gundomar I (also Gundimar, Godomar, or Godemar) was eldest son and successor of Gebicca, King of the Burgundians. He succeeded his father in 406 or 407 and reigned until 411. He was succeeded by his brother Giselher.

In the Nibelungenlied, he is named Gernot (sometimes Gernoz)and he is the brother of Gunther, Giselher and Kriemhild.

In Norse mythology, he is called Guthormr, and he was the murderer of Sigurd (Sigfried), the dragon slayer.

Gernot comes from the Old High German "ger" (spear) and "khnoton" (to brandish). It is rare, but still in use in German speaking countries today. Some famous Gernots include: Gernot Pachernigg Gernot von Fulda Gernot Schwab Gernot Endemann
