Nezahualcoyotl ("Coyote in fast" or "Coyote who Fasts") (April 28, 1402 – June 4, 1472) was a philosopher, warrior, architect, poet and ruler of Texcoco in pre-Columbian Mexico. Unlike other high-profile Mexican figures from the century preceding the Spanish Conquest, Nezahualcoyotl was not an Aztec; his people were the Acolhua. He was a son of Ixtlilxochitl I and father of Nezahualpilli.

He is best remembered for his beautiful poetry.
