374 Burgundia is a typical main beltasteroid that was discovered by Auguste Charlois on September 18, 1893 in Nice. It was named for the former French region of Burgandy. It is one of seven of Charlois's discoveries that was expressly named by the Astromomisches Rechen-Institut (Astronomical Calculation Institute).
Burgundia was long thought to be a member of the now defunct Ceresasteroid family, but it was found to be an unrelated interloper in that group based on its non-matching composition.
