The Rhodes Professorship of Imperial History was one of the senior professorships in history at King's College London. Endowed by the Rhodes Trust in 1919, it was axed in 2022 over links to the colonial legacy of its namesake Cecil Rhodes. It was the second oldest academic chair in its subject in the world after the Beit Professorship of Colonial History at Oxford (founded in 1905).
