Dorothea Sophia of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (28 September 1636, Glücksburg - 6 August 1689, Karlsbad) was a German noblewoman. The great-granddaughter of king Christian III of Denmark, she was the daughter of Philip, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and Sophia Hedwig of Sachsen-Lauenburg.
