Yolanda de Courtenay, Queen Consort of Hungary was the second wife of King Andrew II of Hungary.
Yolanda was the daughter of Count Peter II of Courtenay and his second wife, Yolanda of Flanders, the sister of Baldwin I and Henry I, the Emperors of Constantinople. Her marriage with King Andrew II, whose first wife, Gertrude had been murdered by conspirators on September 24, 1213, was arranged by her uncle, the Emperor Henry I.
Their marriage was celebrated in February 1215 in Székesfehérvár and Archbishop John of Esztergom crowned her queen consort.
Following her uncle's death on July 11, 1216, her husband was planning to acquire the imperial crown for himself, but the barons of the Latin Empire proclaimed her father emperor, instead.
Yolanda maintained good relations with her husband's children from his first marriage. Her husband survived her. She was buried in the Igris, Abbey of the White Monks.
Her marriage to Andrew produced one child:
Yolanda (c. 1215 – 12 October 1251), wife of King James I of Aragon
