Jutta of Saxony (c. 1223 – before 2 February 1267) was a Danish Queen consort, spouse of King Eric IV of Denmark. Jutta was the daughter of Albert I, Duke of Saxony. She married king Erik in 1239, and became junior queen consort, since her husband was junior king, even though there were no senior queen at the time. She would become senior queen in 1242.
