The Duchy of Burgundy (French: Duché d'Bourgogne; Scottish Gaelic: Diùcachd na Burgundy), also recognized as Burgundy is a state located in Central Europe, nominally a vassal of the Kingdom of France. In 1432 the personal union between the Kingdom of Scotland, the Duchy of Burgundy, the Duchy of Auvergne and the County of Boulogne begins and a new prosperous era emerges for our realm.

  • Positive () Relations
    • High Kingdom of Eiru: Allies and royal marriage, both members of the Celtic Confederation. The Kingdom of Scotland and the Lordship of Ireland combined their forces to achieve their independence from the Kingdom of England.
    • Principality of Wales: Allies and royal marriage, both members of the Celtic Confederation. The Kingdom of Scotland played a crucial role in the Welsh War of Independence (1400-1404), helping the Principality of Wales to achieve its independence in the Second Treaty of Caernarfon.
    • Örebro Union: Allies and royal marriage. During the Welsh War of Independence the Örebro Union answered the Scottish call to war and joined the fight against the Kingdom of England, providing much needed forces to overcome them and eventually secure the independence of the Principality of Wales.
    • Kingdom of Iceland: Former vassal, allies and royal marriage, both members of the Celtic Confederation. Helped them secure the Faroes islands, Orkney and Shetland in the First Treaty of Akranes. Had to give up our vassalage to them in the Second Treaty of Akranes to secure the Örebro Union's participation in the Welsh War of Independence, also to quell the grievances of the grumbling Norwegian nobility.
    • Kingdom of France: Renewed the Auld Alliance with the Kingdom of Scotland and at their insistence, the High Kingdom of Eiru was also added in the alliance. During the Welsh War of Independence the Kingdom of France answered the Scottish call to war and rejoined the fight against the Kingdom of England, opening a much needed second front in the Continent. Crown Prince David III's wife, Joan II of Auvergne and Boulogne, inherited her father's fortune, the Duchy of Auvergne and the County of Boulogne in 1404. The Crown Prince rules over them via jure uxoris rule, swearing fealty to King Louis XI of France for these possessions.
