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 Burgundians gave their name to the later Romance nation and region of Burgundy.
