Godigisel (359-406) was King of the Hasdingii Vandals until his death in 406. He was killed in battle late in 406, shortly before his people forced a crossing of the Rhine River into the territory of the Roman Empire.

Godigisel was succeeded by his eldest surviving son, Gunderic, who led the Vandals into Gaul and later, to Spain. But he's best known as the father of Geiseric, who succeeded Gunderic to the kingship in 428 and ruled for 49 years, establishing a powerful kingdom in north North Africa.
