Sibylla of Burgundy (1126 – 16 September 1150 in Salerno) was the second queen consort of Roger II of Sicily.

Family[edit]

She was a daughter of Hugh II, Duke of Burgundy and his wife Felicia-Matilda of Mayenne.[1]

Her maternal grandparents were Gauthier, Count of Mayenne and Adelina de Presles.

Marriage, Issue and Death[edit]

In 1149, Sibylla married King Roger II of Sicily. On 29 August of that year, she gave birth to a son (apparently premature) called Henry, who died young.

One year later she became pregnant a second time. Sibylla gave birth to a stillborn child and died of complications of the childbirth. She was buried in the church of the Monastery of La Trinità Cava de' Tirreni.[2]
