Margaret of Geneva (died 1252) was the daughter of William I, Count of Geneva, and Beatrice de Faucigny. She was supposed to become the third wife of Philip II of France but was abducted by Thomas I of Savoy in 1195, while on her way to Paris. Thomas then married her himself, claiming that Philip II was already married (the French King had married Ingeborg of Denmark in 1193 but had repudiated her soon thereafter).

She was the direct matrilineal ancestor of Mary, Queen of Scots.
