The so-called "Prince of Glauberg" is a life-sized sandstone statue of a Celtic ruler from modern day Glauberg, Germany. The "Prince of Glauberg" is depicted with a mail tunic, a wooden shield and a sword, indicating his status as a warrior. Typical of the ancient Celts, the Prince also wears a moustache, trousers, and a torc necklace.

The Glauberg region is known for its spectacular archaeological finds, including numerous Celtic burials from the 1st Millennium BCE. The statue is currently on display in the World of the Celts At the Glauberg Museum, in Germany.
