Dulce of Aragon (or of Barcelona) (1160–1 September 1198) was Queen consort to King Sancho I of Portugal, the eldest daughter of Ramon Berenguer IV, Count of Barcelona and his wife, Queen Petronila of Aragon and sister of the future King Alfonso II of Aragon.
Dulce married Infante Sancho in 1174, an event that renewed the alliance between the Portugal and Dulce's native Aragon. Their union was arranged by her brother, Alfonso II of Aragon. With the death of King Afonso Henriques in 1185, her husband ascended the throne and she became Queen consort of Portugal.
Sancho I, in his will of 1188, bequeathed Vouga, Santa Maria and Porto to his wife. The Queen also acquired other properties by the terms, including Alenquer, Portugal, making her the Lady of Alenquer.
Dulce died in Coimbra and was buried in the Monastery of Santa Cruz, next to her husband.
