Anastasius III (died June 913) was Pope from April 911 to June 913, was a Roman by birth. He was allegedly the illegitimate son of his predecessor Pope Sergius III (904–911). Other sources mention Lucian, a Roman nobleman, as his father.

Practically nothing is recorded of Pope Anastasius III, his pontificate falling in the period when Rome and the Papacy were in the power of Theophylact, Count of Tusculum and his wife Theodora, who approved Anastasius III's candidacy. Under his reign the Normans of Rollo were evangelized.

He was buried in St. Peter's Basilica.
