Princess Hermine of Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym (German: Prinzessin Hermine Amalie Marie von Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym; 2 December 1797 in Hoym, Germany – 14 September 1817 in Budapest, Hungary) was by birth a princess of the House of Ascania and by marriage an Archduchess of Austria.
She was the eldest daughter of Victor II, Prince of Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym, and Princess Amelia of Nassau-Weilburg. Hermine had three younger sisters: Adelheid, Emma, and Ida.
She was married 30 August 1815 at Schaumburg Castle. The princess was just 17 years old when she married the 39-year-old archduke. Archduke Joseph had no male heirs, since his first wife, Grand Duchess Alexandra Pavlovna of Russia, died giving birth to a stillborn daughter.
Princess Hermine also died in childbirth at the age of 19, after giving birth to fraternal twins. Both of her children died unmarried and without issue. On 24 August 1819, her husband married for a third time to her first cousin, Duchess Maria Dorothea of Württemberg.
