Lars Gustafsson Vasa (born 1 September 1586 in Silesia died 1660) - fictional son of Prince Gustav of Sweden with his supposed wife Brita Karth.

According to the legend, in 1621 he married Brita Törnros. They were earlier thought to be the parents of Lars Eldstjerna and Samuel Stjerneld, founders of the Swedish noble families of Eldstierna and Stierneld respectively. Modern scholars have however refuted this myth and Lars and Samuel are nowadays identified as the sons of a vogt at Händelö named Lars (died 1657), whose possible patronym might have been Björnsson.
