Mary of Burgundy (1457-1482), Duchess of Brabant, Limburg, Lothier, Luxemburg and Guelders and Countess of Flanders, Artois, Charolais, Hainaut, Holland, Zeeland and Zutphen (1477-1482).

Mary was the only daughter of Charles the Bold and granddaughter of Philip the Good. As the heiress to the vast and wealthy Burgundian domains in France and the Low Countries she was often referred to as "Mary the Rich". Mary ascended upon her father's death in the Battle of Nancy on January 5 1477. On 16 August 1477 she married Archduke Maximilian of Austria. To entice the Low Countries into providing support against the French King, Brabant was granted its 'Joyous Entry' and Holland and Zeeland their 'Great Privilege".

In 1482 she died after a fall during a hunt. Her son succeeded her as Philip IV of Burgundy (Philips de Schone / Philip the Handsome) under the guardianship of his father.
