acqueline de Rohan, Marquise de Rothelin (c. 1520 - 1587), was the daughter of Charles de Rohan and Jeanne de Saint-Severin.

 Marriage and children
On 19 June 1536, at Lyon, she married Francois of Orléans-Longueville, Marquis de Rothelin, Prince of Chalet-Aillon, Viscount of Melun (2 March 1513- 25 October 1548), son of Louis I, Duke of Neufchatel, Prince of Chatel-Aillon and Johanna of Baden-Hochberg, Countess of Neufchatel and Margravine of Rothelin, by whom she had two children:
1. Leonor, Duke de Longueville, Duke d' Estouteville, Prince of the Blood (1540- 1573), married in 1563, Marie d'Estouteville, by whom he had issue, including Henri I, 8th Duke de Longueville.
2. Francoise d'Orléans-Longueville, (5 April 1549- 11 June 1601), who was born posthumously. On 8 November 1565, she married Huguenot leader Louis I de Bourbon, Prince de Condé, as his second wife, by whom she had issue. The House of Savoy-Carignan descended from their union.
Her husband died on 25 October 1548, and in watching her son Leonor's interests in Neuchâtel she was brought into contact with the reformers in Switzerland. She then embraced Protestantism and turned her château at Blandy, in Brie, into a refuge for Huguenots.
In 1567 she underwent a term of imprisonment at the Louvre for harbouring Protestants.
