Theodora Angelina (d. 22/23 June 1246) was the wife of Leopold VI of Austria, by whom she had several children.

Theodora is believed to have been born sometime around 1180/5 in Constantinople to parents whose identities are uncertain. However, it is known that one of her grandmothers was a daughter of a Byzantine Emperor. As such, Theodora may have been a daughter of John Doukas (son of Andronikos Angelos) or else a daughter of one of Andronikos Angelos's daughters.

In 1203, Theodora married a distant cousin, Leopold VI, Duke of Austria.[4] Her husband died in 1230 and she subsequently became a nun. She died in 1246.[1]

Leopold and Theodora had seven children:

 Margaret, Duchess of Austria (1204 - February 28, 1266)
 Agnes of Austria (February 19, 1205 - August 29, 1226)
 Leopold of Austria (1207–1216)
 Henry of Austria (1208 - November 28, 1228)
 Gertrude of Austria (1210–1241)
 Frederick II, Duke of Austria (25 April 1211 - June 15, 1246)
