Þóra Magnúsdóttir (born ca. 1100 in Norway) was a daughter of King Magnus III of Norway.

Þóra married an Icelandic man and moved to Iceland. Her husband was the powerful chieftain Loftur Sæmundsson, a son of Sæmundur fróði Sigfússon. Their son was Jón Loftsson. A descendant of Loftur and Þóra was Þuríður Sturludóttir (born ca. 1228), who married Hrafn Oddsson (born ca. 1225), who was a descendant of Sakallagrímur Kveldúlfsson (Skalla-Grímr), the father of skald and viking Egill Skallagrímsson. In their son Jón korpur Hrafnsson (born ca. 1255), the two warring clans were united.
