Elric of Melniboné is a fictional character created by Michael Moorcock, and the antihero of a series of sword and sorcery stories centering in an alternate Earth. The proper name and title of the character is Elric VIII, 428th Emperor of Melniboné. Later novels by Moorcock mark Elric as a facet of the Eternal Champion.

Elric first appeared in print in Moorcock’s novella, "The Dreaming City" (Science Fantasy #47, June 1961); subsequent novellas were reformatted as the novel Stormbringer (1965), but

his first appearance in an original novel wasn't until 1973 in Elric of Melniboné.

The novels have been continuously in print since the 1970s.

Elric is described by his creator, in the first book, Elric of Melniboné, as follows:
