Louise, Queen of Prussia (German:Luise, Königin von Preußen) is a 1931 German historical drama film directed by Carl Froelich and starring Henny Porten, Gustaf Gründgens and Ekkehard Arendt. The film's art director was Franz Schroedter.

It depicts the life of Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1776-1810), the wife of Frederick William III of Prussia. It forms part of the Prussian film genre.

The film was produced by Porten's own production company, founded during the silent era when she has been a dominant German star. The failure of the film led to the financial ruin of Porten's production company and she appeared in much fewer films after this point.[1]
