Countess Ekaterina Semyonovna Vorontsov (October 24, 1784 in Saint Petersburg – March 27, 1856 in London), sometimes spelled Woronzow, was the daughter of Semyon Vorontsov, the Russian ambassador in Britain from 1785, and the only sister of Prince Mikhail Vorontsov, Viceroy of New Russia and Caucasus (1782–1856). She was also a niece of Princess Dashkova, a friend of Catherine the Great and a conspirator in the coup d'état that deposed Czar Peter III and put his wife on the throne.
