John Alsop King (1788–1867) was an American politician who served as governor (1857–1859) of New York.

He was born in the area now encompassed by New York City on 3 January 1788 and was educated at Harrow School in England. He was the son of Rufus King, the brother of James Gore King, who briefly represented the state of New Jersey, and the father-in-law of Henry Bell Van Rensselaer.

John King served in the state assembly (at times from 1819 through 1840) and senate (1823), and was also the New York representative (1849–1851) to Congress.

King died on 7 July 1867 in Queens County, New York, aged 79.
