Peter II (1304 – 15 August 1342) was crowned King of Sicily (then called Trinacria) in 1321 and gained full sovereignty when his father died in 1337.

His father was Frederick III of Sicily and his mother was Eleanor of Anjou, a daughter of Charles II of Naples and Maria Arpad of Hungary. Maria was a granddaughter of Béla IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina.

His reign was marked by strife between the throne and the nobility, especially the old families of Ventimiglia, Palizzi, Chiaramonte, and Antiochia.

He died suddenly in 1342 in Calascibetta and was buried in the cathedral of Palermo. He was succeeded by Louis, his eldest son, who was only five years old.
