The National Socialist Party (Romanian:Partidul Național-Socialist) was a mimetic National socialist political party active in Romania during the early 1930s.

The success of the Nazi Party in the July 1932 election in Germany increased interest in their ideology in Romania and, whilst the National-Christian Defense League had developed a relationship with Nazi agents, the formation of a specific Nazi party in Romania soon followed.[1] Led by Colonel Ștefan Tătărescu, the brother of Gheorghe Tătărescu (twice Prime Minister of Romania), the group made little headway as it was one of a number of far right groups competing unsuccessfully against the Iron Guard for support.[2]
