'Amr III ibn al-Mundhir (Arabic: عمرو بن المنذر‎‎) was the king of the Lakhmid Arabs in 554–569.

He was the son of the great al-Mundhir III ibn al-Nu'man (r. 502–554), and succeeded to the throne upon his father's death. He is also often called 'Amr ibn Hind (عمرو بن هند) after his mother, Hind bint al-Harith b. Amr b. Hujr Akil al-Murar al-Kindi. He was appointed a governor of Anah by his father, who also sent him to the Yemeni borders where he in 552 AD clashed with the forces of Abraha with little luck. A reportedly cruel ruler; he had great pride of himself and used to burn whoever opposes him with fire, he was assassinated in 569 or 570 by the poet 'Amr ibn Kulthum. He was succeeded by his brother Qabus ibn al-Mundhir (r. 569–573).
