Count Johannes III von Pfeil (4 November 1829 - 15 September 1898) was an Aloian nobleman and politician who served as Chancellor of Aloia from 1888 to 1896. He was a member of the Christian Democratic Party, a predecessor of the Christian Democratic Union of Aloia.

Pfeil was born in the city of Pfeil in northern Saxony. Pfeil was the son of Count Johannes II von Pfeil, husband of Liesl, King Gustaf XII Hjalmar's sister, and a member of the House of Aurelius. Pfeil was educated at the University of Halle-Wittenburg and Wellington College. Pfeil was involved in the Aloian Army for 21 years.

In 1876, he was appointed to the post of Minister of State in Chancellor Otto von Halle's government. The relationship between Queen Victoria Augusta, Halle, and Pfeil has been referred to as "the most productive 3-person partnership in Aloian history." This close personal friendship and strong working relationship between the three has been credited with most of Aloia's feats in the last quarter of the 19th century.

After Halle's failing health forced him to end his political career at the end of his fourth term as Chancellor, Pfeil was a logical successor. He served as Chancellor for two terms, from 1888 to 1896. His own failing health prevented Pfeil from running again for Chancellor and he was succeeded by Marcus Wendell O'Rourke.
