Aleksandr Pavlovich Rodzyanko (Russian: Алекса́ндр Па́влович Родзя́нко, Ukrainian: Олекса́ндр Па́влович Родзя́нко), (18 August 1879 — 6 May 1970) was a lieutenant-general and a corps commander of the White Army during the Russian Civil War.
Rodzyanko came from an old Ukrainian aristocratic family, his father Pavel Rodzyanko was a major landowner and he was a nephew of Mikhail Rodzianko. Aleksandr was educated at the Page Corps and the Cadre Noir, he joined the elite Chevalier Guard regiment. He was also an equestrian sportsman and competed for Russia in the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm. He was promoted Colonel in 1912 and went on to take part in World War I.
In 1919, Nikolay Yudenich appointed Rodzyanko his aide. On 23 November 1919 he was sent by Yudenich to England to seek financial support. After his mission proved abortive, he chose not to return to Estonia but settled in Germany instead, later emigrating to America.
