Hugh was the eldest son of Robert II, Duke of Burgundy and Agnes of France.[1]

Hugh was betrothed to Catherine of Valois in 1302, but the betrothal was broken off 30 September 1312,[1] and he had no known descendants. He was involved in the Crusader movement and was also titular King of Thessalonica,[2] a title he sold in 1313 to his brother Louis in exchange for the latter's rights to Burgundy.[1] He was succeeded by his younger brother Odo IV, Duke of Burgundy.[2]
