Portuguese House of Burgundy

The House of Burgundy (Casa de Borgonha, Portuguese pronunciation: ) was a cadet branch of the Capetian dynasty, descending from Robert I, Duke of Burgundy, a younger son of Robert II of France.

The House ruled the Duchy of Burgundy from 1032–1361. The main line of the dynasty ended with the death in 1361 of Philip I, Duke of Burgundy. His duchy was inherited by John II of France, whose mother had been a member of the House of Burgundy, so the duchy passed to the House of Valois, then the ruling house of France.

Notable members of the main line of the House of Burgundy include:
