The Secret King: Karl Maria Wiligut, Himmler's Lord of the Runes, is a 2001 book presenting the written works of Karl Maria Wiligut, an occultist employed by Heinrich Himmler during the Third Reich. The collection was translated and introduced by Stephen E. Flowers and edited by Michael Moynihan.

It was co-published by Dominion Press (Waterbury Center, VT) and Rûna-Raven Press (Smithville, TX) in a 160-page hardcover (ISBN 0971204403) and paperback (ISBN 1885972210).

The book took ten years to compile, translate and edit. Wiligut's works were originally published in the rare ariosophical journals Hag All All Hag and Hagal. Himmler commissioned Wiligut to write private reports on Runes, secret Germanic traditions, and prehistory. Through this position of influence, Wiligut came to be known after his death as “Himmler’s Rasputin.”

Secret King contains a biographical introduction about Wiligut’s life and magical worldview. An interview with Gabriele Winckler-Dechend, Wiligut’s closest colleague from his period of service in the SS, is included.
