Alexander Semyonovich Shishkov (Russian: Алекса́ндр Семёнович Шишко́в) (March 20 [O.S. March 9] 1754 - April 21 [O.S. April 9] 1841, Saint Petersburg) was a Russian statesman, writer, and admiral.

Shishkov was notorious for his proto-Slavophile sentiments.[1] He was the President of the Russian Academy and People's Education Minister.[2] Shishkov published The Trilingual Naval Dictionary, Russia's first dictionary of Russian and foreign naval terms.[2] He was an influence on Prince Shirinsky-Shikhmatov and on the young Sergei Aksakov.
