Waldrada or Waldraith (born 801) was a Frankish noblewoman who lived during the 9th century. She was first married to Robert III of Worms in 819 in Wormsgau, Germany. This marriage brought a son, Robert IV the Strong, in 830. The marriage ended when Robert III died in 834.

Waldrada was later the second wife of Conrad II, Duke of Transjurane Burgundy. They had two known children, Adelaide of Auxerre and Rudolph I of Burgundy. (Waldrada, who was born in 801, could hardly have been the mother of Adelaide d'Auxerre, born 864 at the earliest, more likely after 868. It looks like there should be an intermediate generation).

Her father was Adrian, Count of Orléans (758–824), and her mother was also named Waldrada, daughter of Adalhelm of Autun.
