|Spouse||Odo IV, Duke of Burgundy|
|Issue||Philip I, Count of Auvergne|

She was married in 1318 to Odo IV, Duke of Burgundy, as part of a settlement between the two men regarding the French succession (Odo had previously supported the right of his niece - and Joan's cousin - Queen Joan II of Navarre, to inherit the French throne as well); Joan thus became Duchess of Burgundy.
Joan bore six children. With the exception of Philip, all were stillborn or died in infancy. Philip predeceased her; her titles therefore passed to her grandson, Philip I of Burgundy upon her death in 1347.
