Now that we have the "Burgundic" nation (1st millenium CE, added in 2012), the
"Burgundian" nation (Duchy of Burgundy, added 2007) has a confusingly similar
legend, since both talk about each other.
** "After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, a Germanic people known as the
Burgundians settled in the river valleys of eastern Gaul, lending their name
to the region. Centuries later, the Duchy of Burgundy was a prosperous country
with the court in Dijon outshining that of Paris. Today, it is one of the
regions of France."
** "The Burgundians were an ancient East Germanic people who probably
originated on Bornholm island. After leaving Bornholm they lived between the
Oder and Vistula rivers. During the Migration Period, along with other
Germanic peoples they invaded the Roman Empire, and in 472 CE, some of them
sacked Rome. Their first kingdom was founded in Worms, but after its
destruction by the Huns they moved to what is today Savoy and Burgundy, where
they founded their second kingdom. Eventually they were subordinated by the
Frankish Kingdom. The Bugundians gave their name to the later Romance nation
and region of Burgundy."
