Miklós Erdődy de Monyorókerék et Monoszló (Croatian: Nikola III Erdödy) (1630 – 7 June 1693) was a Croatian ban of Hungarian descent. He was a member of the Erdődy noble family and a Hungarian count.
He succeeded Petar Zrinski as ban in 1671. In 1684 he began his most notable undertaking, driving Ottoman forces out of Slavonia. Virovitica was freed in 1684. In 1688 the city of Kostajnica was liberated, and Slavonski Brod was liberated by 1691.
Erdődy died in 1693. However, his work was carried on by his successor Adam Baćan. The wars against the Ottoman Empire throughout the region eventually led to the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699.
