Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke (°26/10/1800 –24/4/ 1891) was a German field marshal. The chief of staff of the Prussian Army for thirty years, he is regarded as the creator of a new, more modern method of directing armies in the field. He is described as embodying "Prussian military organization and tactical genius." He is often referred to as Moltke the Elder to distinguish him from his nephew Helmuth Johann Ludwig von Moltke, who commanded the German Army at the outbreak of World War I.

Helmuth Karl Bernhard von Moltke (°26/10/ 1800 – 24/04/1891) was een Duitse generaal-veldmaarschalk, dertig jaar lang de stafchef van het Pruisische leger, en wordt algemeen gezien als een van de grootste strategen van de tweede helft van de 19e eeuw. Hij is de schepper van een nieuwere, modernere methode om legers in het veld aan te sturen. Hij wordt soms Moltke de Oude genoemd om hem te onderscheiden van zijn neef Helmuth von Moltke de Jonge, die bij het uitbreken van de Eerste Wereldoorlog het bevel voerde over de Duitse legers.
