FMG: The Marii Episcopi Aventicensis Chronica names "filius eius Sigismundus rex" when recording that he succeeded after the death of his father [Marii Episcopi Aventicensis Chronica 516, MGH Auct. ant. XI, p. 234.].  Gregory of Tours names Sigismond as son of Gondebaud, when recording his succession to his father, specifying that he founded the monastery of Saint-Maurice d'Agaune [Gregory of Tours III.5, p. 165], dated to 515 [Wood (1994), pp. 51-2].  He was co-regent in Burgundy from [501].  He supported the Byzantine emperor and was awarded the title patricius [Wolfram, H. (1998) History Of The Goths (Berkeley, California), p. 312.].  He converted to Catholicism and visited Pope Symachus in Rome [Wolfram (1998), p. 313.  The conversion must have taken place before 514, when Pope Symachus died.].  He succeeded his father in 516 as SIGISMOND King of Burgundy.  He issued his law-book, Liber Constitutionem, at Easter 517 [Wood (1994), p. 51.].  Gregory of Tours records that Chlodomer King of the Franks invaded Burgundy and captured King Sigismond, who was held prisoner near Orléans but murdered with his wife and children after his brother Gondemar defeated the Franks, their bodies being thrown down a well at Saint-Péravy-la-Colombe in the Orléannais [Gregory of Tours III.6, pp. 166-7.].  The Marii Episcopi Aventicensis Chronica records that "Sigimundus rex Burgundionum" was betrayed to the Franks by the Burgundians in 523 and became a monk in France, before being thrown into a well with his wife and children.
