Battle of Lasy Królewskie (Polish: "Bitwa w Lasach Królewskich", Battle of Royal Forests) refers to the battle on September 1 1939 near Janowo and Krzynowołga Mała during the battle of the border of the Invasion of Poland.

It was a cavalry battle, as Polish Uhlan cavalry (elements of 11. Pułk Ułanów Legionowych) encountered German cavalry units. Polish cavalry charged the Germans, and melee combat ensued. Sabers (on Polish sides, szablas) were used.
