Franz "Franzl" Lang (28 December 1930 – 6 December 2015), known as the Yodelking (German: Jodlerkönig), was a yodeller from Bavaria, Germany. Lang also sang and played the guitar and the accordion and was the author of several books on yodelling. Lang's genre is German folk music; he typically sang in the Bavarian dialect of the rural Alpine regions.

By general consensus, Lang was considered to be the best Alpine yodeller in the world.

His greatest hit was his 1968 recording of Karl Ganzer's composition "Das KufsteinerLied". Throughout the 1970's, he was a permanent feature of musical variety shows on West German television, especially on the ZDF program Lustige Musikanten.

Lang has sold more than 10 million recordings; he has earned 20 gold records and one platinum record within the German recording industry. He was known as one of the most famous yodelers to have ever lived.
