"The Widow at Windsor" is a poem by Rudyard Kipling, part of the first set of the Barrack-Room Ballads, published in 1892.

The eponymous "widow" is Queen Victoria; this poem talks about Queen Victoria and how the Empire she rules is so powerful because of the sacrifices that her soldiers make.

T. S. Eliot included the poem in his 1941 collection A Choice of Kipling's Verse.
