Saint Pharailde (8th century) is a Belgian saint in the west. Her dates are imprecise, but she lived to a great age and died on January 5 at ninety. She was married for many years to an abusive man. When he died, she dedicated herself to charity.

According the Vita Gudilae, Gudula, the niece of Gertrude of Nivelles, had a sister named Pharailde, but this relation is not confirmed in the Life of Saint Pharailde.

Her feast day is January 5, and her feast, Fru Verelde, was a major festival in Ghent in the late 19th century (according to Acte de Pharailde 1882).
