Mariano Herencia Zevallos (1820 in Lima, Peru – 1884) was a Peruvian Army colonel and politician who briefly assumed the Presidency of Peru in 1872, following the murder of President José Balta.

After the fall of the Tomás Gutiérrez regime, Francisco Diez Canseco, President Balta's second Vice President, assumed power. The next day, control was transferred to Balta's first Vice President, Mariano Herencia Zevallos, in accordance with the 1860 constitution. Zevallos completed the last week of Balta's term in office and handed power over to his elected successor, Manuel Pardo.

Zevallos was assassinated on February 2, 1873.
