Abdullah III Al-Salim Al-Sabah (1895 – 24 November 1965) (Arabic: عبد الله الثالث السالم الصباح‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) was the 1st Emir of Kuwait and the Commander of the Military of Kuwait from 29 January 1950 until his death, and the eldest son of Salem Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah. As the eleventh ruler of the al-Sabah dynasty in Kuwait, he took power after the death of his cousin Sheikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. He also ruled as regent upon the death of his father until the election of Sheikh Ahmad.

Unlike his predecessors, he was more pro-Arab than pro-British. He effectively ended the British "protectorate" status of Kuwait by signing a treaty with the British on 19 June 1961. He is regarded as the founder of modern Kuwait. He introduced the Constitution of Kuwait in 1962, followed by the parliament in 1963.<ref>The Royal Ark</ref>
