Burgundy (; French: Bourgogne [buʁɡɔɲ] ( listen)) is a historical territory and a former administrative region of France. It takes its name from the Burgundians, an East Germanic people who moved westwards beyond the Rhine during the late Roman period. Historically, "Burgundy" has referred to numerous political entities, including kingdoms and duchies spanning territory from the Mediterranean to the Low Countries. Beginning 1 January 2016, the name Burgundy refers to a specific French political entity that is part of the new administrative region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, an entity comprising four departments, Côte-d'Or, Saône-et-Loire, Yonne, and Nièvre.
