Suniefred (fl. 690s) was a Visigoth who carried out a rebellion against the Visigothic king Egica.

A single coin that is related stylistically to those of the sole reign of Egica indicates that a king of the name of Svniefredvs seized power in Toledo at some point in these years, and for long enough to have the mint start issuing in his name.[1]

Suniefred was identified with the Sunifredus, comes scanciarum et dux of the Thirteenth Council of Toledo (683).[2]
