Gondioc (Proto-Germanic: *Gunþawīgaz; died 473), also called Gundioc, Condiaco, Candiacus and Gundowech, was King of Burgundy following the destruction of Worms by the Huns in 436, succeeding Gundahar. In 451, Gondioc joined forces with Flavius Aetius against Attila, the king of the Huns on the plains of Chalons in modern-day France. Gondioc's sister married Ricimer, the Gothic general at the time ruling the Western Roman Empire.
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.
