Eleanor of Sicily (1325 - 1375) was Queen Consort of Aragon (1349-1375). She was the daughter of Peter II of Sicily and Elisabeth of Carinthia.

She was the third wife of Peter IV of Aragon, whom she married in Valencia on 27 August 1349, on condition that they renounce all rights to any Sicilian Crown.
