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 at 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.
