Lea Fredrika Ahlborn (née Lundgren) (1826 – 1897) was a famous Swedish artist and medallist. She was a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts and the first woman to be appointed royal printmaker. The position of royal printmaker was counted as a public office, and thereby made her the first female official or civil servant in Sweden.
