Berengar I (; ; 845 – 7 April 924) was the King of Italy from 887. He became Holy Roman Emperor after 915, until his death in 924. He is usually known as Berengar of Friuli, since he ruled the March of Friuli from 874 until at least 890, but he had lost control of the region by 896.

Berengar rose to become one of the most influential laymen in the empire of Charles the Fat, and he was elected to replace Charles in Italy after the latter's deposition in November 887. His long reign of 36 years saw him opposed by no less than seven other claimants to the Italian throne. His reign is usually characterised as "troubled" because of the many competitors for the crown and because of the arrival of Magyar raiders in Western Europe. He was the last emperor before Otto the Great was crowned in 962, after a 38-year interregnum.

    Berengario I (Cividale del Friuli, 850 circa – Verona, 7 aprile 924) fu Marchese del Friuli (874 - 924), Re d'Italia (888 - 924) e Imperatore dei Romani (915 - 924). Appartenne alla casata degli Unrochingi. Fu uno dei protagonisti del periodo dell'Anarchia feudale, quando i più importanti feudatari della penisola lottarono per avere il controllo dei territori del carolingio Regno d'Italia.
    Per questo «alcuni storici e una certa retorica nazionalistica hanno fatto di lui un campione e un assertore dell'unità d'Italia».
