Tove of the Obotrites, also called Tova, Tofa or Thora, (10th century) was a Slavic princess and a Danish Viking Age queen consort, the spouse of King Harald Bluetooth.

Thora (Tova) was the daughter of Prince Mistivir of the Obotrites. She married King Harald probably around 970. It is not known whether she was the mother of any of her spouse's children. She let the Sønder Vissing Runestone carve in memory of her mother.
