Alfredo Salvador Figueroa Salinas (August 6, 1888-July 13, 1956) was the Regent Grand Prince of El Salvador from 1946-1956.

Alfredo Figueroa Salinas was appointed as Regent Grand Prince on July 6, 1946, by Emperor Romero II.

During the Salvadoran Revolution of 1956, Figueroa was held in charge of the Salvadoran Army. He was given DINA assistance from Alfonso Cabañeras Moreno. The army, under Tomás Alemán Prats, mutinied and declared allegiance to Paúl Sáenz Mina's Salvadoran Republic. Figueroa was executed on July 13, 1956, after being captured by revolutionaries. The Creeperian Army put down the revolution by November 11.
