Lý Anh Tông (1136–1175), given name Lý Thiên Tộ, was the sixth emperor of the Lý Dynasty, reigning over Đại Việt from 1138 to his death in 1175. Since Lý Anh Tông was chosen as the successor of his father Lý Thần Tông at the age of only three, the early period of his reign witnessed the dominant position of Đỗ Anh Vũ in the royal court until his death in 1157, afterwards the Emperor ruled the country with the assistance of a prominent official named Tô Hiến Thành. The ruling of Lý Anh Tông was considered the last relatively stable period of the Lý Dynasty before the turbulent time during the reign of Lý Cao Tông.
