Countess Eleonóra Zichy de Zich et Vásonkeő (28 March 1867 – 31 October 1945)[1] was a Hungarian noblewoman, granddaughter of Count Manó Péchy. Her parents were Count Rezső Zichy and Countess Jacqueline Péchy.

She married Tivadar Andrássy, son of Gyula Andrássy on 24 June 1885; they had four children:

  • Ilona (1886–1967); wife of József Cziráky; emigrated to Canada in 1961
  • Borbála (1890–1968), wife of Marquis György Pallavicini
  • Katinka (1892–1985), Red Countess, wife of Count Mihály Károlyi
  • Klára (1898–1941), Communist partisan

In 1909, four years after her husband's death, Eleonóra Zichy married to her former brother in law, Gyula Andrássy the Younger, brother of Tivadar.
