Vytautas the Great (Lithuanian: Vytautas Didysis, Belarusian: Vitaŭt; Ruthenian: Vitovt; Latin: Alexander Vitoldus; c. 1350 – October 27, 1430), also known in English by the traditional Polish and German name Witold, was one of the most famous rulers of medieval Lithuania. With the title Didysis Kunigaikštis, the equivalent of king, he was the supreme ruler of his dominions.

Vytautas was the ruler (1401–1430) of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania which chiefly encompassed the Lithuanians and Ruthenians. He was also the Prince of Hrodna (1370–1382) and the Prince of Lutsk (1387–1389), postulated king of Hussites.
