His parentage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis. "Hugonis filii mei, Henrici filii mei" subscribed the charter dated 1101 under which "Odo dux Burgundie", on the point of leaving for Jerusalem, donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon. "Odo dux Burgundiæ" granted compensation for his actions to Cluny by charter dated 1101 in which he names "filiorumque suorum, Hugonis, Heinrici". The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "dux Hugo filius ducis Odonis" as father of "Lingones…episcopus Galterus [et] episcopum Eduensem Henricum". He was appointed regent in Burgundy by his father end-1100 before leaving for Palestine.
He succeeded his father in 1103 as HUGUES II "le Pacifique" Duke of Burgundy. "Hugo dux Burgundie filius Odonis ducis" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated 1102, which specifies that his father died "in itinere Hierosolimitano", presumably misdated if the date of death of Duke Eudes is correctly stated above. "Hugo dux Burgundie" donated serfs to Dijon Saint-Etienne, for the soul of "patris meis Odonis" and with the consent of "fratre meo Henrico", by charter dated 1103. He helped Louis VI King of France against Henry I King of England in Normandy in 1109. He commanded the advance guard in Champagne ready to defend France from the threatened attack by Emperor Heinrich V in 1124. He acquired the county of Grignon and the Châtelet de Chalon. He is called "Hugone Borrello duce Burgundie" in a Molesme charter. “Hugo dux Burgundiæ” donated land in “Flagit et Verne” to Vergy Saint-Vincent, with the consent of “uxore sua Mathilde cum omnibus filiis suis Odone, Hugone, Roberto, Henrico, Raimundo, Walterio”, by charter dated 20 Oct 1131. 1
Hugues married Mathilde DE MAYENNE, daughter of Seigneur Gautier IV DE MAYENNE and Aelina DE PRESLES, about 1116. (Mathilde DE MAYENNE died after 1162 in Beaune, , France.)
