Sir Henry King, 3rd Baronet PC (I) (c. 1681 – 1 January 1740) was an Anglo-Irish politician.

King was the second son of Sir Robert King, 1st Baronet and Frances Gore. He sat in the Irish House of Commons as the Member of Parliament for Boyle between 1707 and 1727.[1] In 1720 he succeeded his elder brother, John, to the family baronetcy. He represented Roscommon County from 1727 to 1740.[2] In 1733 he was made a member of the Privy Council of Ireland.

He married Isabella Wingfield, daughter of Edward Wingfield and Eleanor Gore, in April 1722. Their eldest son, Robert King, was made Baron Kingsborough in 1748, while their second son, Edward King, was made Earl of Kingston in 1768.
