Alessandro Borgia (Velletri, 1783 – Palazzo Magistrale, Rome, 1872) was a leader of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, succeeding Filippo di Colloredo-Mels as its lieutenant in 1865.
Born into the Borgia noble family, he entered the order as a minor on 18 February 1797 and made his official profession to it in 1802. He took up official residence with the order in 1818, when he settled in the Jerusalemite convent in Catania, where the Order was then based, until he and the Order's other knights moved to Ferrara in 1824 and Rome in 1834, in order to keep the Order's general archive safe. He was succeeded as lieutenant by Giovanni Battista Ceschi a Santa Croce.
