Frederick (April 19, 1452 – November 9, 1504), sometimes called Frederick IV, was the last King of Naples of the Neapolitan branch of the House of Trastámara, ruling from 1496 to 1501. He was the second son of Ferdinand I, younger brother of Alfonso II, and uncle of Ferdinand II, his predecessor.

Born in Naples to Ferdinand I and his first wife, Isabella of Taranto, the daughter of Tristan, Count of Copertino and Caterina Orsini, he succeeded his childless nephew Ferdinand II after the latter's early death in 1496, at the age of 27.

A combination of King Louis XII of France and Frederick's famous cousin King Ferdinand II of Aragon had continued the claim of Louis's predecessor, King Charles VIII of France, to Naples and Sicily. In 1501 they deposed Frederick; Naples initially went to Louis, but by 1504 a falling-out led to Naples' seizure by Ferdinand, after which it remained part of the Spanish possessions until the end of the War of the Spanish Succession.

Frederick died in Tours in 1504.
