(Redirected to Hugh the Black article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hugh the Black (died 952) was Duke of Burgundy from 923 until his death. He was a Bosonid through his father, who was the younger brother of Boso of Provence.

Hugh was the last son of Duke Richard of Autun and Adelaide of Auxerre. He succeeded his older brother Rudolph in Burgundy, when the latter was elected King of France, as Raoul.

It is unknown whether Hugh married. He probably died without living offspring, as he was succeeded in Burgundy by Gilbert of Chalon, husband of his sister Ermengarde.
