Countess Margaret of Hanau-Münzenberg (6 April 1471 – 5 September 1503 in Worms) was a daughter of Count Philip I of Hanau-Münzenberg and his wife, Countess Adriana of Nassau-Dillenburg.
Her family negotiated her entry into the Liebenau monastery as early as 1477, and she was accepted there as a nun.
Correspondence between her and her father has been preserved, which shows that she still took an interest in the affairs of her family after she entered the convent.
