Bonne of Luxemburg, Duchess of Normandy, Countess of Anjou and of Maine (20 May 1315 – 11 September 1349), was born Jutta (Judith), the daughter of John the Blind of Luxemburg, king of Bohemia and his first wife Elisabeth of Bohemia. She was the first wife of King John II of France; however, as her death occurred a year prior to his coronation, she was never a French queen consort. Jutta was referred to in French historiography as Bonne de Luxembourg. She was a member of the House of Luxembourg. King Charles V of France, and Joan of Valois, Queen of Navarre, were two of her ten children.

Jutta was born in Prague, Bohemia, on 20 May 1315, the second eldest daughter of John of Luxembourg, King of Bohemia, and Elisabeth of Bohemia. Jutta was an elder sister of the future Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, who was crowned six years after her death in 1349. Jutta's maternal grandparents were Wenceslaus II of Bohemia and his first wife, Judith of Habsburg. Her paternal grandparents were Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII and his wife Margaret of Brabant. When Jutta was about fifteen, her mother died. Her father decided to remarry. He chose as his bride Beatrice of Bourbon. They had a son, Wenceslaus, who succeeded his father in Luxembourg.

Jutta was originally betrothed to Casimir III of Poland, however this arrangement was broken and Casimir married Aldona of Lithuania instead. After Aldona's death, Casimir was betrothed to Jutta's elder sister Margaret, however this betrothal was also broken and Casimir remarried to Adelaide of Hesse.

Jutta was married to the future John II of France on 28 July 1332 at the church of Notre-Dame in Melun. She was 17 years old, and the future king was 13. The name for Jutta (or Guta) translatable into English as Good (in the feminine case), was changed by the time of marriage to Bonne (French) or Bona (Latin). Upon marriage, Bonne was the wife of the heir to the French throne, becoming Duchess of Normandy, and Countess of Anjou and of Maine. The wedding was celebrated in the presence of six thousand guests. The festivities were prolonged by a further two months when the young groom was finally knighted at the cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris. Duke John of Normandy (as King John II was known as a prince) was solemnly granted the arms of a knight in front of a prestigious assistance bringing together the kings of Luxembourg and Navarre, and the dukes of Burgundy, Lorraine and the Brabant.

Bonne was a patron of the arts, being a favorite of composer Guillaume de Machaut.

She died on 11 September 1349 of the bubonic plague in Maubisson, France at the age of thirty-four. This was one year and fifteen days prior to the coronation of her husband as King John II of France. She was buried in the Abbey of Maubisson.

Less than six months after Bonne's death, John married secondly Jeanne I, Countess of Auvergne, by whom he had two daughters who both died young.

John and Bonne had the following children together:

 Charles V of France (21 January 1338 – 16 September 1380)
 Louis I of Naples (23 July 1339 – 20 September 1384)
 John, Duke of Berry (30 November 1340 – 15 June 1416)
 Philip II, Duke of Burgundy (17 January 1342 – 27 April 1404)
 Joan of Valois (24 June 1343 – 3 November 1373)
 Marie of Valois (12 September 1344 - October, 1404)
 Agnes of Valois (1345–1349), died young
 Margaret of Valois (1347–1352), died young
 Isabelle of Valois (1 October 1348 – 11 September 1372)
