Burgundy was a powerful area throughout the early history of Western Europe. There were two Kingdoms of Burgundy, first around the 6th century and then around the 11th century. By the mid 1300's, it had been subdivided amongst heirs. The remnant was the Duchy of Burgundy ruled by Dukes from the Valois line. This period lasted from 1364 to 1477. Their territory included large parts of Belgium and the Netherlands, Luxembourg and part of France, with their court centered in Dijon.
