Omar Ali Saifuddin I (died 10 July 1795) was the Sultan of Brunei from 1740 until his death in 1795. He succeeded his father in law, Sultan Husain Kamaluddin as Sultan of Brunei upon the latter's abdication from the throne in 1740.
His Highness was the son of Sultan Muhammad Alauddin Ibni Al Marhum Pengiran Di-Gadong Pengiran Muda Shah Mubin.
