Edward Williams, better known by his bardic name Iolo Morganwg (Welsh pronunciation: ), (10 March 1747 - 18 December 1826) was an influential Welsh antiquarian, poet, collector, and literary forger.

He was widely considered a leading collector and expert on medieval Welsh literature in his day, but after his death it was revealed that he had forged a large number of his manuscripts. Regardless, he had a lasting impact on Welsh culture, seen most notably in his foundation of the Gorsedd, and the philosophy he developed in his forgeries had a huge impact on the early neo-druid movement.

His bardic name is Welsh for Iolo of Glamorgan (the countys name is spelt Morgannwg in modern Welsh). Iolo is the diminutive of Iorwerth, a Welsh name often seen as equivalent to Edward, although neither name is a translation of the other.
