Sofia Anna Czarnkowska (also called Zofia Czarnkowska Opalińska or Catherine-Sophie-Anne Czarnkowska) (12 March 1660 – 2 December 1701[1]) was the daughter of Adam Uriel Czarnkowski and Theresa Zaleska. She was also the grandmother of Marie Leszczynska (who would be Queen Consort of France, married to Louis XV of France) and Anne Leszczynska.

She died on 8 December 1701 from pneumonia[2] aged 41, at Breslau (today Wrocław).[3]

A monument was erected in 1748 in the church of Sierakow.[4] The crypt in a nearby castle contains the sarcophagus of the Opalinski family.

Among her matrilineal descendants is the current reigning King Juan Carlos I of Spain, who is her descendant through an unbroken line of Bourbon princesses from Marie Leszczynska of France, who married within the Bourbon house.

She was married to Jan Karol Opalinski on December 4, 1678. They had several children:
