    Procopius records that ?eius filii Gontharis, ex iusta ipsi uxore natus? succeeded after ?Godigisclo? died.  He succeeded his father in 406 as GUNDERIC King of the Vandals.  Isidor's Historia Gothorum, Wandalorum, Sueborum names "Gundericus" as first Vandal king in Spain[9].  Gregory of Tours names Gunderic as king of the Vandals who left their homeland and invaded Gaul before attacking Spain[10].  General Maximus, who led the army of anti-Emperor Constantine III in Spain, invited the Vandals, along with other barbarian peoples, across the Pyrenees in 409 in a personal bid for power but soon found himself overrun[11].  The Chronicon of Bishop Idatius records that ?Alani et Wandali et Suevi? entered Spain in 409[12].  Gunderic and his people settled in Galicia.  They expanded into land held by the Suevi, continuing to support Maximus as anti-Emperor, although the latter was defeated by combined Roman and Visigothic forces in 422.  The Vandals turned their attention to southern Spain where they imposed their control from Cadiz to Alicante.  Gunderic died after conquering Seville[13].  m ELISA, daughter of ---, from Granada.  The Victoris Vitensis Historia records that Gaiseric killed his brother's wife by weighing her down with a stone and throwing her into the river Cirtensis at Amsaga, before killing her sons, although neither the brother nor the brother's wife are named[14].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.   Gunderic & his wife had one child:  GELIMER
