The Minister of Croatian Affairs of Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország horvát-szlavón-dalmát tárca nélküli minisztere) was a member of the Hungarian cabinet in Austria-Hungary. The position was created following the Croatian–Hungarian Agreement in 1868. The minister was appointed by the Croatian Parliament, the Sabor. The officeholder kept a connection between Croatia-Slavonia-Dalmatia and the Kingdom of Hungary (and also the Austrian part of Austria-Hungary). This position was without portfolio.

After World War I[edit]

After the First World War the ministry was dissolved because Croatia became part of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs and subsequently Yugoslavia. But, de jure, until the Hungarian Soviet Republic, this position survived.

Zsigmond Kunfi was a People's Commissar who was entrusted with the ministry's liquidating, between 6 November 1918 and 19 January 1919.
