Count Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy ( ; – ) was a Russianmarker poet, novelist and dramatist.

Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy was born in Saint Petersburgmarker to the famed family of Count Tolstoy. He graduated from the University of Moscowmarker in 1836. He spent most of his life at court, serving first as the Master of Ceremonies, later as Grand Master of Royal Hunting. He retired from service in 1861 to dedicate more time to writing poetry.

He wrote admirable ballads, a historical novel, some licentious verse, and satires published under the pen name of Kozma Prutkov. But his lasting contribution to the Russian literature was a trilogy of historical dramas, modelled after Pushkin's Boris Godunov.
