Adelaide (or Alice, Alix — died 8 March 1279, Évian) was Countess of Burgundy from 1248 until her death. She was also Countess of Savoy and Bresse through her marriage in 1267 to Philip I, Count of Savoy.

Adelaide was the daughter of Otto I, Duke of Merania and Beatrice II, Countess of Burgundy. She inherited the County after the death of her brother, Otto III, Count Palatine of Burgundy, in 1248. As countess, she came into conflict with King Rudolph I.

Adelaide died in 1279 and was buried in Cherlieu Abbey near Besançon.
