King's was a federal electoral district in Prince Edward Island, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1896 to 1968.

This riding was created from King's County riding.

It was abolished in 1966 when it was merged into Cardigan riding.

It initially consisted of the town of Georgetown and other parts of the County of King's.

In 1903, it was redefined to consist of the whole of the County of King's.
