Conrad the Peaceful ( – 19 October 993) was the king of Burgundy from 937 until his death. He was the son of King Rudolph II, the first king of a united Burgundy and Bertha of Swabia. Conrad is sometimes numbered Conrad I as king of Burgundy and as Conrad III of Provence, since he inherited Provence in 948.

His reign was peaceful (hence his byname) and he was popular with his subjects. The only war in which he got involved was a simultaneous invasion of Saracens and Magyars in which he played them off against each other. He then routed them in combat.

He married Matilda, daughter of Louis IV of France and Gerberga of Saxony. They had at least four children:

He was secondly married to Adelaide of Bellay. They were parents to at least one daughter:
