Edwin Henry King (December 1828 – April 14, 1896) was a Canadian banker.

Born in Ireland, King emigrated to Canada in 1850. He was general manager of the Bank of Montreal from 1863 to 1869 and was president of the bank from 1869 to 1873. Historian Oscar Douglas Skelton called him "the most striking figure in Canadian banking history".
