Adelbert Mühlschlegel (June 16, 1897 – July 29, 1980)[1] was a prominent German Bahá'í from a Protestant family. He became a Bahá'í in 1920, translated Bahá'í literature and served as a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of Germany.

He was appointed a Hand of the Cause by Shoghi Effendi in February 1952, individuals who have been considered to have achieved a distinguished rank in service to the religion. He was the first of three believers who decisively influenced the German Bahá'ís.[2] after which he travelled to visit the Bahá'ís in many countries. He died in Athens, Greece.
