Anna Vigfúsdóttir á Stóru-Borg (died 1571), was an active Icelandic landlord. She was a rich heiress famous for her love to the poor shepherd Hjalti Magnusson, and her long feud with her brother, judge Pal, who refused to accept their love and tried to prevent them from marrying and to take control over her estates. Her story was the subject of a novel by Jón Trausti.
