- Aemilia Lepida is the name of several ancient Roman women belonging to the gens Aemilia. The name was given to daughters of men belonging to the Lepidus branch of the Aemilius family. The first Aemilia Lepida to be mentioned by Roman historians was the former fiancee of the younger Cato. Subsequent Aemiliae are known because of their marriages.
- Aemilia Lepida was a noble Roman woman and matron. She was the eldest daughter and first-born child of Julia the Younger and consul Lucius Aemilius Paullus. Her father was of a distinguished and ancient patrician family. She was the first great-grandchild of Emperor Augustus, noble woman Scribonia and a great-grandchild of consul Lucius Aemilius Lepidus Paullus.
