Philip of Burgundy (November 10, 1323 – August 10, 1346) was Count of Auvergne and Boulogne and the only son and heir of Odo IV, Duke of Burgundy, and of Joan III, Countess of Burgundy. His mother was the daughter of King Philip V of France and of Joan II, Countess of Burgundy.

He married Joan I, Countess of Auvergne and Boulogne, in c. 1338.

In 1340, he fought with his father who defended the city of Saint-Omer against the assaults of Robert III of Artois. In 1346, he participated in the siege of Aiguillon, led by the future John II of France. It was during this siege that he died, following a fall from his horse while crossing a ditch.

His widow Joan remarried in 1349, her second husband being King John II of France. Since Philip had no other children from his marriage to Joan, the future of the House of Burgundy was then placed in the hands of his young son Philip (1346–61), who afterwards died childless.
