Ursula, Margravine of Brandenburg (17 October 1488 – 18 September 1510) was a German noblewoman.

She was born in Berlin, the daughter of John Cicero, Elector of Brandenburg, and Margarethe of Saxony.

At age 19, on 16 February 1507 she married Duke Henry V of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1479–1552). They had three children:

  1. Sophia of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1508–1541), married Ernest I, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg
