The Principality of Anhalt-Bernburg was a German principality at the time of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, the Confederation of the Rhine and the German Confederation. It existed under this name from 1252 until 1468 and from 1603 to 1863, when the territory was incorporated into the Duchy of Anhalt.

The principality of Anhalt-Bernburg came into being in 1252 through the division of the principality of Anhalt-Zerbst into Anhalt-Aschersleben, Anhalt Bernburg and Anhalt-Zerbst. In 1468, the ruling princely family became extinct in the male line, and Anhalt-Bernburg fell to the principality of Anhalt-Zerbst.
