Mesa de los Tres Reyes (Aragonese: Meseta d'os Tres Reis, Gascon: Tabla d'eths Tros Rouyes, Basque: Hiru Erregeen Mahaia, (Roncalese Basque: Iror Errege Maia), French: Table des Trois Rois) is a mountain of the Pyrenees. It is the highest point of Spanish Navarre with an elevation of 2,428 metres (7,965 ft).

Its name, "The Table of the Three Kings", derives from the fact that this mountain is located at the confluence of the ancient kingdoms of Aragon, Navarre and Béarn.

There is a similarly named mountain in the Ports de Beseit, at the eastern end of the Iberian System.
