Ermentrude of Orléans (27 September 823 – 6 October 869) was Queen of the Franks by her marriage to Charles the Bald, Holy Roman Emperor and King of West Francia. She was the daughter of Odo, Count of Orléans and his wife Engeltrude. The epithet 'of Orléans' is not contemporary.

She and Charles married in 842. Their children were:

Ermentrude had a gift for embroidery and an interest in religious foundations. She was described by a contemporary, John Scottus Eriugena, as a 'strong woman' (femina fortis). Two letters written in her name survive, and a further five that were addressed to her. She had associations with several convents, including Chelles and Avenay, and was involved in twelve charters issued by King Charles the Bald.

In August 866, Ermentrude was consecrated, over twenty years after becoming queen. It has been suggested that this reflected her husband's desire for more children. Ermentrude died on 6th October 869.[1] She was buried in the Basilique Saint-Denis, Paris, France.
