The Treason Act 1535 (27 Hen.8 c. 2) was an Act passed by the English Parliament during the reign of King Henry VIII of England in 1535.

It made it high treason to counterfeit the King's privy seal, signet ring or royal sign manual.

The Act was repealed by the Treason Act 1553,[1] but another Act passed later in the same year recreated the offence.[2]
