Vlaho Getaldić (also Biagio Ghetaldi; 22 December 1788 - 27 October 1872) was a Dalmatian writer, translator and politician from Dubrovnik.

Born in the Republic of Dubrovnik (in the city of Dubrovnik itself), he was the grand-nephew of the renowned Marin Getaldić, and descendant of Gundulić family through his mother's line. He was member and president of the Council "Reign of Dalmatia" based in the city of Zadar, which consisted of eight individuals. Getaldić married Ana Božidarević. His cousin, the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Šišmundo Getaldić-Gundulić married with the sister of Malvina Božidarević.

The Austrian Empire gave him the title of Baron in 1846. In 1865 Vlaho translated Osman (by Ivan Gundulić) from Croatian into Latin hexameters. In the short introduction, Vlaho gave the rules of his translations.
Also, Vlaho wrote poetry in Latin.
