Burgundii are one of the non-playable factions in the Barbarian Invasion expansion for Rome: Total War. They can be made playable through very simple modding. They are in the Barbarian culture group.
Campus Burgundii (Tribus Burgundii)
The Burgundii have to invade the eastern regions of Gaul.
The Burgundii are quite basically the Lombardi with a different name.
See the section for the Lombardi.
The Burgundii were an eastern Germanic tribe that have been linked to the Scandinavians, they were raiding Roman northern Gaul at the time of Attila the Hun. By 436 AD, in an effort to turn Hunic attention away from Rome they offered Attila vast amounts gold if he suppressed these raids, as a result Attila committed genocide wiping-out almost all of the population, the few survivors were eventually absorbed by the Visigoths, Franks and the fragmented Western Roman Empire.
