Sven III of Arendaal ("Sven the Just") (1252 – 1309) was the King of Arendaal between 1280 and 1309. He was the eldest son of the formidable Queen Regent Isabelle I of Arendaal and her husband Prince Geoffrey of Breotonia.

King Sven III was a dignified and somewhat enigmatic figure. His rule was character ised by the renewed supremacy over the nobles of Northern Arendaal and a continuance of close relations with Germanic and French Kingdoms.

He married Princess Immanuelle of Saxony, a daughter of Holy Germanic Emperor Maximilian III, maintaining close relations with the Holy Germanic Empire and German states in general. His daughter Princess Erika would marry the Count of Schlesitz and become the mother of Sebastian I, First Duke of Franken. He also arranged the marriages of his daughters to French sovereigns to continue the tradition of close ties between Arendaal and these nations, such as Alienore, Queen of Montelimar.

King Sven III's wife, Immanuelle of Saxony

He was a pious prince and a patron of poets, notably many famous Troubadours.

He established numerous royal decrees for the protection of the minorities over whom he ruled, including, Jews and - a novel measure - women.

Sven's cousin and rival, Pieter der Gottmann, Duke of Thorvald and a notorious anti-Semite, contemptuously called Sven the "King of the Jews" when the King took forceful measures against religious pogroms, including the execution of at least five anti-Jewish leaders of a riot.
