Eadgifu (b. 902, d. after 955) or Edgifu, was the daughter of Edward the Elder, King of Wessex and England, born in Wessex.

She was the second wife of King Charles III of France, whom she married in 919 after the death of his first wife, Frederonne, and she was mother to Louis d'Outremer of France.

In 922 Charles III was deposed and the next year taken prisioner by Count Herbert II of Vermandois, an ally of the present king. To protect her son's safety Eadgifu took him to England in 923, where he stayed until 936, when he was called back to France to be crowned king.

She retired to a convent in Laon. Then, in 951, she left the convent and married Herbert III, Count of Vermandois.
