Henry III (940–5 October 989), called the Younger, of the Luitpolding dynasty, son of Berthold, Duke of Bavaria, was the duke of Carinthia (976–978, 985–989) and Bavaria (983–985).

On the death of Berthold in 947, Bavariamarker was given to the brother of King Otto I, Henry, who had married Judith, daughter of the old duke Arnulf the Bad.

In 976, Henry received some compensation by receiving the ancient duchy of Carinthia, severed as it was from Bavariamarker. In 978, he was one of the Henries in rebellion against Otto II in the War of the Three Henries. The others were the son of Henry of Bavariamarker, the deposed Henry the Wrangler, and Henry I, Bishop of Augsburg. He was deposed and both he and the Wrangler were banished. In 983, he was recalled from banishment to be instated in Bavariamarker, but upon Otto III's reconciliation with the Wrangler, Henry was given Carinthia again and deprived of Bavariamarker. When he died in 989, he was the last male Luitpoldinger.
