As for Godigisel, once the victory was won, he promised to hand over part of his kingdom to Clovis and then went home in peace and entered Vienne in triumph, as if he were still master of his own territory.
Once provisions began to run short among the common people, Godigisel was afraid that the lack of food might extend to him also, and he ordered them to be driven out of the town.
Godigisel took refuge in one of the heretic churches, but he was killed there and his Arian bishop with him.

 The History of the Franks
The bishop called him "Sicamber" because the Merovingian (from Merovech) line of Frankish kings claimed to be descended from the Sicambri [Sicambri were of the Scythian race, and lived at the mouth of the Danube, later driven to the border of Germany and the German Sea by the Goths].
Visigoth's Godigisel and the Franks' Clovis join in battle against Godigisel's brother Gundobad.

 Gaiseric
Gaiseric, whose actual name Gaisureiks means "spear-king", was an illegitimate son of King Godigisel; he is assumed to have been born near Lake Balaton (now in Hungary) around the year 389.
As a young man, Gaiseric fought in wars against the Romans and Franks; we can presume he participated in a bloody war with the Franks in 406 and the subsequent breaching of the Roman Empire's Rhine frontier on 31 December 406.
Not only does the 389-390 period seem the most congruent, I would also add that between 400 and 406, Godigisel was fighting constant wars and was less likely to be fathering children--and if he did, even less likely to take illegitimate children and raise them as part of his own family.

Gregory, however, is more willing to acknowledge the role of cities in his narrative: Gundobad "marched his army against his brother Godigisel and besieged him inside his city of Vienne" (History II.33).
In response Godigisel foolishly "expelled the engineer who was in charge of the aqueduct" (History II.33).
Godigisel’s move proves foolish, though, since the engineer (obviously familiar with the Roman aqueduct of Vienne) helps Gundobad easily outsmart Godigisel.
