Heonjong of Goryeo (1 August 1084 - 6 November 1097) (r. 1094–1095) was the fourteenth monarch of the Goryeo dynasty of Korea. He was the eldest son of king Seonjong. According to the Goryeosa, he was a bright child and excelled in writing by the age of 9.

In the year of his accession, Heonjong was faced by the rebellion of Yi Ja-ui, which was quickly put down. In the following year, he fell ill and gave up the throne to king Sukjong, his uncle.
