Bonne of Artois (1396 – 17 September 1425, Dijon) was Countess consort of Nevers by marriage to Philip II, Count of Nevers, which left her a widow at 18 or 19, and Duchess consort of Burgundy by marriage to Philip III, Duke of Burgundy, popularly known as Philip the Good. She served as regent of the County of Nevers during the minority of her son from 1415 until 1424.

Countess of NeversEdit
Their eldest son Charles succeeded as Count of Nevers. However, due to the child's minority, Bonne acted as regent from 1415 until 1424. She succeeded her aunt Jeanne d'Artois as Mademoiselle de Dreux and as Dame de Houdain.
Duchess of BurgundyEdit
After Philip's death, Bonne married his nephew Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, on 30 November 1424 at Moulins-les-Engelbert. His first marriage to Michelle of Valois had produced no surviving issue and she had died young, so Philip married Bonne.
Bonne is sometimes confused with Philip's biological aunt, also named Bonne of Burgundy (1379–1399) in part due to the papal dispensation required for the marriage which made no distinction between a marital aunt and a biological aunt.
She had two sons with her first husband, Philip II:
