The Duchy of Burgundy (Latin: Ducatus Burgundiae, French: Duché de Bourgogne, Dutch: Hertogdom Bourgondië) was a duchy in Europe which came into existence in 1032. The Duchy of Burgundy was considered one of the larger divisions of the lands of the Kingdom of the Burgundians, coming to own considerable possession of numerous French and Imperial fiefs in the Low Countries, known as the Burgundian Netherlands. Burgundy emerged as a remnant of the Frankish realm of Lotharingia, and became one of the larger ducal territories in the empire at the emergence of the early modern period.
