Ermengarde of Tours (German: Irmingard von Tours) (d. 20 March 851) was the daughter of Hugh of Tours, a member of the Etichonen family, which claimed descent from the Merovingian kings. In October 821 in Diedenhofen (Thionville), she married the Carolingian Emperor Lothair I of the Franks (795–855).
In 849, two years before her death, she made a donation to the abbey Erstein in the Elsass, in which she is buried.
