Eva Luise Köhler ( [ˈkøːlɐ]; born 2 January 1947 in Ludwigsburg as Eva Luise Bohnet) is the wife of the former German President Horst Köhler (Mandate : 1 July 2004 – 31 May 2010) and as such, was sometimes referred to by the media as the "First Lady" during her husband's presidency.

She completed her Abitur in Ludwigsburg in 1966, and studied History, Germanistics and Religion. She then became a teacher of German. Eva Köhler was a member of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) from 1972 to 1990 (as she advocated Willy Brandt's Ostpolitik) and participated in local politics. She left the SPD because she disliked the politics of Oskar Lafontaine.

Eva and Horst Köhler have two children, Ulrike (born 1972) and Jochen (born 1977).
