Léon Hennique (4 November 1850 – 25 December 1935) was a French naturalistic novelist and playwright.
Léon Hennique was born in Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, the son of the naval infantry officer Agathon Hennique. He studied painting, but after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 devoted himself to literature and became a naturalistic novelist and dramatist. He was a friend of Émile Zola, but broke with him over the Dreyfus Affair.
He died in Paris on 25 December 1935 and is buried at Ribemont.
His daughter was the symbolist poet Nicolette Hennique.
