Alpaida (also Alpaïde, Alpaide, Alphaida, Alpoïde, Elphide, Elfide, Chalpaida; ca. 654 – ca. 714) was a Frankish noblewoman who hailed from the Liège area. She became the mistress of Pippin of Herstal (635 or 640 – December 16, 714) and mother to two sons by him, Charles Martel (Charles the Hammer) (d. October 22, 741) and Childebrand (678–751).

In the Liber Historiae Francorum and the Continuations of Fredegar she is referred to as Pepin's wife.

    Alpaïde, Alpais ou Chalpais, est la seconde épouse de Pépin de Herstal, maire du palais d'Austrasie. Pépin l'a épousé du vivant de sa première épouse Plectrude en cette époque où la polygamie était encore possible. Alpaïde est la mère de Charles Martel, maire du palais et ancêtre de la dynastie des Carolingiens, et probablement de Childebrand, ancêtre de la famille des Nibelungides.
