Grace Elizabeth King (November 29, 1851 – January 14, 1932) was an American author of Louisiana stories, history, and biography, and a leader in historical and literary activities.
She was born in New Orleans, the third of what became seven children of lawyer William Woodson King and Sarah Ann (née Miller) King. The family had an aristocratic background but had been impoverished by the American Civil War. Grace King later studied under Charles Gayarré and eventually found her living in writing; among her subjects were other women who had been put in the same situation.
She is buried in Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans.
