Princess Ōe (大江皇女 Ōe no himemiko?) (died 699) was a Japanese princess who lived during the Asuka Period. She was a daughter of Emperor Tenji. Her mother was Lady Shikobuko (色夫古娘), daughter of Oshiumi no Miyakko Otatsu (忍海造小竜). Ōe's siblings include Prince Kawashima and Princess Izumi.

Ōe married Emperor Temmu and gave birth to two sons: Prince Naga and Prince Yuge. After Emperor Temmu's death, they were qualified to become the next Emperor, but neither did.
