Rosalie von Rauch (1820 – 1879) was the morganatic second wife of Prince Albert of Prussia, the youngest child of King Frederick William III.

She was the only daughter of Prussian General and Minister of War Gustav von Rauch. On June 13, 1850, she married Prince Albert of Prussia, son of King Frederick William III of Prussia. The marriage produced two sons: Wilhelm, born in 1854, and Friedrich, born in 1857.

After the death of her husband (1872), she was created Countess von Hohenau. She is regarded as the patroness of House Rauch.

She had two sons with Prince Albert:

 Wilhelm "Willy" Hohenau (25 April 1854 – 28 October 1930), married first to Baroness Laura Saurma von der Jeltsch, and secondly to Princess Margaret Hohenlohe, a daughter of Prince Hugo of Hohenlohe-Öhringen, Duke of Ujest, and Princess Pauline von Fürstenberg, whose maternal uncle was Leopold, Grand Duke of Baden; had four children by these two marriages who bore the titles of Counts and Countesses Hohenau;
 Friedrich "Fritz" Hohenau (21 May 1857 – 15 April 1914), married Countess Charlotte von der Decken and had four sons, Albert, William, Frederick-Charles and Frederick-Francis.

Over ten years after her death, her daughter-in-law Charlotte was involved in the "Kotze scandal", which lasted from the autumn of 1892 until the summer of 1894. Her son Fritz's wife was rumored to be having an affair with Fritz's cousin Emperor Wilhelm II.
