Anna of Racibórz (Polish: Anna raciborska; b. 1292/98 – d. 1 January/21 August 1340), was a Polish princess member of the House of Piast in the Racibórz branch and by marriage Duchess of Opawa and Racibórz.
- Jan I, who later inherited the Duchy of Racibórz
- Euphemia, married Siemowit III of Masovia
- Elizabeth, who became a nun,
- Agnes, also a nun
- Anna, by marriage Burgravine of Magdeburg
- Margaret of Opava, married John Henry of Moravia
In 1336, after the death of her only brother Leszek, Anna's husband was invested with the Duchy of Racibórz (he claimed the succession as the next male relative of the late Duke) after the arbitral decision of King John of Bohemia, despite the strong resistance of the next blood male relatives of Leszek.
Anna died four years later between January–August 1340 and was probably buried in the Dominican monastery of Racibórz.
