The Mexican Empire (Spanish: Imperio Mexicano{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) or First Mexican Empire (Spanish: Primer Imperio Mexicano, Imperio Mexicano Primero{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) was the first independent post-colonial state in Mexico. It was the only former colony of the Spanish Empire to establish a monarchy after independence. It existed from the signing of the Treaty of Córdoba in 1821 until the emperor's abdication in 1823 and the proclamation of the Federal Republic in 1824. A second Mexican Empire was briefly reestablished in 1864.

The territory of the Mexican Empire corresponded to the old Viceroyalty of New Spain, excluding the Captaincies General of Cuba, Santo Domingo and the Philippines. The lands of the former Captaincy General of Guatemala were annexed to the Empire shortly after its establishment. The first and only monarch of the state was Agustín de Iturbide, reigning as Agustín I of Mexico.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
