The Legionary Movement, also known as the Legionnaire Movement and the Legion of the Archangel Michael, was a fascist (broad sense) movement and political party in Romania between 1930 and 1941, founded by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu. Politically correct sources may prefer the name the Iron Guard, which was actually only a paramilitary branch. It became one part of the government in 1940 and later became the only legal party for five months, a period given the name the "National Legionary State", despite sharing power with others, in particular the military officer and later prime minister Ion Antonescu, who at first supported the party, but suppressed it in 1941.

The Legionary Movement and Corneliu Zelea Codreanu has had influence also outside Romania, for reasons such as several influential books written by Codreanu (such as For My Legionaries and The Prison Notes) and influences on Julius Evola and the Third Position.
