Archibald Douglas, Earl of Moray (1426?18 May 1455) was a Scottish nobleman during the reign of King James II of Scotland. He was one of the five brothers from the Black Douglas family who clashed with the king.
He was a twin brother of James Douglas, 9th Earl of Douglas. In later years, James was believed to be the older by only a few minutes, as he inherited the earldom of Douglas, when their older brother was killed by the king, but it has been suggested that in earlier years Archibald was believed to be the older.
He became Earl of Moray jure uxoris by marrying the countess.
He was killed fighting the king's supporters at the Battle of Arkinholm.
