Janissaries II: Clan and Crown is a novel by science fiction authors Jerry Pournelle and Roland J. Green, the second book of Pournelle's Janissaries series (the first was titled simply Janissaries). It was originally published in 1982, and like the first book in the series, was richly illustrated by comics artist Bermejo. In 1996 Janissaries: Clan and Crown appeared in a double novel with the third book in the Janissaries series, Janissaries III: Storms of Victory as Tran.

The book continues the adventures of Captain Rick Galloway's Earth-born mercenaries on the plant Tran as they continue to carve out an area of conquest and necessary alliances with Tran's native human population, in order to serve the alien Shalnuksis.
