S.M.S. König Albert was a Kaiser Class battleship built in Germany prior to the First World War and which served in the High Sea Fleet of the Imperial German Navy during that war.

König Albert was the final ship of five which comprised the Kaiser class. It was the only vessel of the Imperial Fleet to be given the name König Albert.

During the war, König Albert was assigned to the III Battleship Squadron along with its sister-ships, although it was the only one to miss the Battle of Jutland. The ship was interned at Scapa Flow until the scuttling of the fleet on 21 June, 1919.

The wreck was raised in the 1930s.
