Princess Anna Monika Pia of Saxony, Duchess of Saxony (4 May 1903, Lindau, Bavaria – 8 February 1976, Munich, Bavaria, Germany) was the seventh and youngest child of Frederick Augustus III of Saxony and his wife Archduchess Luise of Austria, Princess of Tuscany and a younger sister of Georg, Crown Prince of Saxony and Friedrich Christian, Margrave of Meissen.
