Sophia Stuart (22 June – 23 June 1606) was the fourth daughter and seventh and final child of King James VI and I by his wife Anne of Denmark. She was born at Greenwich Palace on 22 June 1606 and died there the next day. She was buried in King Henry's Chapel, Westminster Abbey, in a monument designed by Maximilian Colt that resembles a stone cradle. She was likely named for her maternal grandmother, Sophie of Mecklenburg-Güstrow.
