Erich Raeder (1876–1960) was Commander in Chief of the German Navy until his resignation and retirement in May 1943.

At the International Military Tribunal held in Nuremberg, Raeder was found guilty on counts one, two, and three (conspiracy, crimes against peace, and war crimes). He was sentenced to life imprisonment. Raeder was released due to poor health in 1955, having served only nine years of his sentence.
