Edla (10th century-11th century), traditionally sometimes kalled "Duchess of Venden", was a Slavic Viking age woman, mistress of King Olaf of Sweden and mother of King Emund the Old of Sweden.

Tradition say Edla was the daughter of a West Slavic Tribal chief from Northern Germany. She was brought to Sweden as a prisoner of war at the same time, or a little before, as Estrid of the Obotrites in c. 1000. King Olof Skötkonung fell in love with her and took her as his mistress, although he married Estrid. She became the mother of Emund, Astrid Olofsdotter and possibly Holmfrid. Snorre Sturlasson say, that her children was sent to foster parents away from the royal court because Queen Estrid was not kind to them. This could indicate, that Edla died when her children was small.
