Smaragd (III) from the kindred Smaragd (Hungarian: Smaragd nembeli (III) Smaragd; died July 1266) was a Hungarian prelate from the gens Smaragd, who served as archbishop of Kalocsa from 1257 to 1265. His father was Smaragd II, voivode of Transylvania in 1206.

He was the provost of Pressburg (today: Bratislava, Slovakia) between 1253 and 1254. As elected provost of Székesfehérvár, he served as royal vice-chancellor between 1254 and 1258.[1] Along with his relatives, he founded the Premonstratensian provostry in Zsámbék in 1258. During the 1260s he served as chancellor for junior king Stephen. He attempted to reconcile the two parties (Béla IV and his son). He was murdered in July 1266.
