Seal of Hugh V of Burgundy

Hugh V of Burgundy (1294 – May 9, 1315) was Duke of Burgundy between 1306 and 1315.

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

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