Beatrice of Provence (c. 1231 – 23 September 1267) was Countess of Provence and Forcalquier. She was also a Queen consort of Sicily by marriage to King Charles I of Sicily.

The youngest daughter of Raymond Berenguer IV of Provence and Beatrice of Savoy, Beatrice was married on 31 January 1246 to Charles of France, Count of Anjou and Maine, the youngest brother of King Louis IX of France.

In 1248, Beatrice accompanied her husband on the Seventh crusade, and gave birth to her first child in Nicosia. In 1266, Charles was crowned king, making her the Queen of Sicily.
