Ginger Alden (born November 13, 1956; Memphis, Tennessee) is an American actress/model who is best known as being the fiancee of Elvis Presley at the time of his death.

Alden first met Presley in 1961 through her father who had been Presley's induction officer when he joined the United States military in 1958. Her family had been invited to join Elvis at the fairgrounds for a night of fun. When she was 20 years old, she, her older sister Terry (then the current Miss Tennessee) and their older sister Rosemary were introduced to Presley once again. Presley had been dating others when he asked Ginger to marry him. Presley introduced Alden and her family often during their courtship and while on his tours and during his last televised performance in 1977, Presley introduced her to a national audience and had planned to announce their engagement publicly on his upcoming tour in Memphis.

Elvis, then aged 42, and Ginger came in from playing raquetball on August 16, and Elvis went to go read a book in his bathroom. Ginger fell asleep and woke early that afternoon to find his lifeless body in the bathroom.[1]

After Presley's death, Ginger alden made a career in modeling, radio, television and film. She worked in numerous commercials, made guest appearances on television shows, and signed on to be a regular cast member of the 1986–87 season of the daytime soap opera, Capitol alongside Teri Hatcher.
