Simonne Rosalie Thérèse Odile d'Ardenne (1899-1986; S.R.T.O. or sometimes S.T.R.O.) was a Belgian medieval philologist who studied Middle English with J.R.R. Tolkien during the 1930s[1], and became Professor of Comparative Grammar at the University of Liège in 1938[2].

D'Ardenne became a close friend of the Tolkien family, and J.R.R. visited her in Belgium in the 1950s.
