Anna Elisabet Weirauch (7 August 1887, Galaţi – 21 December 1970, West Berlin) was a German author.
Anna Elisabet Weirauch lived in Romania with her German mother, who was a writer, and her father, the founder and director of the Bank of Romania until he died. She moved to Thuringia with her mother, and by 1893 they moved again to Berlin. In the capital, Weirauch went to a private school to learn how to act. For a decade starting 1904, she worked at Berlin's German State Theatre, where she was directed by Max Reinhardt.
She started writing plays but later moved to novels. In 1933 she moved to Gastag, Upper Bavaria, where she lived with her life partner, Helena Geisenhainer. After the Second World War, she moved to Munich and later returned to Berlin, one year before she died.
