Matilda II, Countess of Nevers (1234/35–1262), also known as Maud of Dampierre or Mathilda II of Bourbon, was a sovereign Countess of Nevers, Countess of Auxerre, Countess of Tonnerre and Lady of Bourbon.
She was a daughter of Archambaud IX of Bourbon and Yolande de Châtillon, Countess of Nevers. As heiress to the counties of Nevers, Auxerre and Tonnerre, she was married off to Odo, the eldest son of Hugh IV, Duke of Burgundy. This marriage was meant to reunite two important counties with the Duchy of Burgundy, but he predeceased his father, and so the duchy passed to his brother Robert II. After her father's death Matilda also became Lady of Bourbon.
With Odo she had three children:
- Yolande of Burgundy (1247-1280), Countess of Nevers.
- Margaret of Burgundy (1249-1308), Countess of Tonnerre; in 1268 married Charles of Anjou.
- Adelaide of Auxerre (1254-1290), Countess of Auxerre; in 1268 married John, Lord of Chalon (died 1309).
