The Seigneur of Sark is the head of Sark in the Channel Islands. "Seigneur" is the French word for "lord". A female head is called the Dame of Sark. The husband of a female ruler of Sark is not a consort but a ruler of Sark himself.

The Seigneur's office is hereditary. With permission of the Queen it may also be sold. The Seigneur had a suspensive veto power and the right to appoint most of the island's officers.

The residents of Sark voted to introduce a fully-elected legislature to replace the feudal government in 2006, and the law change was approved on April 9, 2008.
