Hugh IV of Burgundy (9 March 1213 - 27 or 30 October 1272) was Duke of Burgundy between 1218 and 1272. Hugh was the son of Odo III, Duke of Burgundy and  Alice de Vergy.
Hugh married twice, first to
Yolande de Dreux when he was 16 and she 17 years of age. He then married  Beatrice of Navarre, when he was 45. Between his two marriages he had 10 children, the following are their issues:
Yolande de Dreux, daughter of Count Robert III "Gasteblé" of Dreux and of  Braine:
Margaret, Lady of Molinot (1230s-1277), married;
Odo (1230-1266), who married Matilda II, Countess of Nevers

Adelaide of Burgundy, Duchess of Brabant, married Henry III, Duke of Brabant Robert II, Duke of Burgundy (1248-1306) From Beatrice of Champagne, daughter of Theobald I of Navarre:
Hugh IV, through a transaction with
John l'Antique de Chalon, gave up the barony of Salon for the counties of Chalon and Auxonne in 1237, which expanded the Duchy and the regional economy benefited from the growing wine trade.
In 1239, Hugh joined the
Barons' Crusade led by King Theobald I of Navarre and supported by Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor. The Burgundian troops allied with  Richard of Cornwall and rebuilt Ascalon and negotiated a peace with Egypt in 1241. Hugh was made titular king of  Thessalonica in 1266, although it had been recaptured by the  Epirus more than 40 years ago.
Hugh IV died on 27 October 1272 (Aged 60) at Villaines-en-Duismois, France. His burial place is unknown.
