Three Kings (Tři králové) was the nickname of a famous Czech anti-nazi resistance group from 1939-1942. Its members were Josef Mašín (executed in 1942), Václav Morávek (killed in action in 1942), and Josef Balabán (executed in 1941).

The group was established in 1939 when Nazi Germany annexed Czechoslovakia. Their most important task was upholding radio contact with František Moravec in Great Britain.
