Constantina Carolina Amalia von Strussenfelt, often called Amelie (1803-1847), was a Swedish writer and poet.

She was the daughter of the courtier and noble Michael von Strussenfelt and Fredrika Beata Lindencrona and sister of the writer Ulrika von Strussenfelt. The family was poor, and like her sister, she supported herself as a governess. She debuted in 1828. With her novel Qvinnan utan förmyndare (Woman without Guardian) from 1841, she participated in the contemporary debate about guardianship over women, which was met by the novel Qvinnan med förmyndare (Woman with Guardian) by Sophie Bolander.
