Prince Krzysztof Mikołaj Artur Radziwiłł [ˈkʂɨʂtɔf miˈkɔwaj ˈartur raˈd͡ʑiviu̯] 1898-1986) was a Polish translator and politician, descendant of the well-known aristocratic Radziwiłł Family. He was a supporter of the Communist regime in Poland, so his family nicknamed him The Red Prince.

Krzysztof was owner of Staszów estates and member of the Sejm in the People's Republic of Poland.

His daughter Anna Radziwiłł broke with his politics, becoming a noted dissident and influential member of Solidarity.
