Princess Adelaide of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (3 April 1831 – 16 December 1909) was the wife of King Miguel I of Portugal but only following his deposition.
Princess Adelaide Sofia Amelia of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg was born in Kleinheubach, near Miltenberg, Bavaria on 3 April 1831. She was a daughter of Constantine, Hereditary Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (1802–1838), and Princess Agnes of Hohenlohe-Langenburg.
On 24 September 1851, Adelaide married the former King Miguel I of Portugal, who was then almost 49. They had one son, Miguel, duke of Braganza, and six daughters.
In 1895, having been a widow for 29 years and two years after the marriage of her last daughter, Adelaide, retired to the abbey of Sainte-Cécile de Solesmes in north-western France. She professed as a nun there on 12 June 1897. Adelaide died on 16 December 1909 at the age of 78 in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, where her community had moved.
