Ana Terter (Bulgarian and Serbian Cyrillic: Ана Тертер; died after 1304) was a Bulgarian princess and Queen consort of Serbia (1284–1299). She was the third wife of King Stefan Uroš II Milutin of Serbia.

According to George Pachymeres, Ana was "the daughter of Terter, borne to him by the sister of Asen.[1] The sister of Asen was Kira Maria- second wife of George I Terter. According another theory Ana was the daughter of George Terter and his first wife Maria,[2] a sister of Bulgarian tsar Theodore Svetoslav.

In 1284 Ana married King Stefan Uroš II Milutin of Serbia as his third wife. They had two children:

In 1299 Stefan Uroš II Milutin divorced Ana in order to marry Simonida, who was only 5 years old. Ana was sent to the Byzantine Empire where in 1301 she married Michael (Demetrios) Doukas Komnenos Koutroules, son of the Despot Michael II Komnenos Doukas of Epirus. They had issues.

In 1304 Ana Terter and Michael (Demetrios) Doukas were accused of conspiracy against the Emperor. In 1305 they were imprisoned in the Great Palace of Constantinople and their property was confiscated. Later Ana and Michael made an attempt to escape to Bulgaria, but they failed and Michael was imprisoned in the jail of Blachernae.
