The 126th SS-Standarte was a small unit of the Allgemeine-SS that was formed in late 1944 towards the end of World War II. Based out of the city of Marburg, the Standarte was formed from surrounding SS commands of the General-SS that had lost most or all of their members to war-time needs and conscription.

The unit was never listed as having a commander and mainly existed only on paper. For a short time, the unit was known as the "126.SS-Standarte Marburg-Drau". The 126th SS-Standarte was formally disbanded upon the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.
