Princess Feodora of Leiningen ("Anna Feodora Auguste Charlotte Wilhelmine") (7 December, 1807 -23 September, 1872) was the only daughter of Emich Carl, Prince of Leiningen (1763–1814) and Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld (1786-1861). Feodora was an older maternal half-sister of Queen Victoria through the second marriage of her mother.

On 29 May, 1818 her mother remarried to Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent and Strathearn, the fourth son of King George III. The following year she, along with the rest of the household, was taken to the United Kingdom as the Duchess' pregnancy came to an end, so that the new potential heir to the British Throne could be born on British soil.

By all accounts, Feodora enjoyed a very close relationship with her half-sister.

In 1828, she returned to the German Confederation and married Ernst, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1794-1860) (the prince had no actual domain as the principality had been mediatised to Württemberg in 1806). She maintained a lifelong correspondence with her half-sister.

She had six children:
